HIGHLANDS and Islands Students’ Association (HISA) has launched a Gaelic survey in a bid to better represent the view of students of the language.
The Suirbhidh Oileanaich le Gàidhlig will quiz students on their experiences of studying at the University of the Highlands and Islands.
The move is the first step in consultations as part of HISA’s Gaelic representation project.
Gaelic-speakers, Gaelic-learners and those with an interest in Gaelic are encouraged to complete the survey, which is backed by funding from Bòrd na Gàidhlig.
Responses will be used to shape recommendations for HISA, aimed at ensuring a strong voice and widened opportunities for all Gaelic-speakers and learners no matter where or what they study in the Highlands and Islands.
HISA President Florence Jansen said: “This will be the first time we have undertaken a consultation of Gaelic students on this scale.”
