Scotland has 19 autonomous higher education institutions (HEI). This diverse range of HEIs includes 14 campus based universities, one distance-learning university, an educational partnership institution based in the Highlands and Islands, one art school, a conservatoire and an agricultural college. All are funded by the Scottish Government via the Scottish Funding Council (SFC), which is responsible for distributing funding to individual institutions for teaching, research and associated activities.
