The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has won the SFC-sponsored widening access category at the 2016 Herald HE Awards for a second year running.
The Conservatoire’s ground-breaking new BA degree in Performance in British Sign Language and English claimed the award ahead of strong competition from Queen Margaret University and the University of Glasgow.
The Herald HE awards celebrate the achievements of Scotland’s colleges
and universities across a whole spectrum of activity including employer engagement, research and student support. The HE Institution of the Year was won by the University of Glasgow and the winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award was John Norman Macleod, vice-principal of Sabhal Mòr Ostaig.
SFC Chair, Professor Alice Brown said: “We’re delighted to continue our participation in the Higher Education Awards. Warmest congratulations to all last night’s winners.”
