More than 80% of the current population of 148,000 people are economically active, while Perth has the joint highest percentage of resident graduates among Scotland’s seven cities.

Here in Scotland's newest city you will also find Scotland's newest university. With 9,000 full and part-time students (21% studying at degree level), Perth College UHI is the largest campus of the University of the Highlands & Islands, offering all levels of qualification up to Masters level. 

The College engages extensively with local industry and the excellent Centre for Enterprise provides high quality support and advice – as well as students – to local businesses. Not only does the Centre help businesses to develop and grow, but it also provides fantastic opportunities for students to gain real industry experience prior to graduation.

Due to Perth's central location in the heart of Scotland, most of Scotland's universities – and one million residents – are accessible from Perth in an hour or less.
