Perth College UHI Campaigning for Landmark Spot in the New Perth and Kinross Monopoly Edition

Perth College UHI is now campaigning to be featured on the Monopoly board. Here are our top reasons why you should vote for Perth College UHI :

  • First opened in 1961 the College has come a long way and is now a large partner in Scotland’s newest University, the University of the Highlands and Islands. One of Scotland’s leading Colleges of Further and Higher Education with over 8000 students currently enrolled.
  • Perth College UHI invests heavily in their facilities and on their campus, making Perth College UHI the ideal place to study. Construction will start August 2015 for a new Academy for Sport and Wellbeing, an exciting current development for Perth College UHI.

Perth College UHI Principle and Chief Executive Margaret Munckton said: “It is wonderful that Perth and Kinross has won the vote out of the 20 regions competing. We have a lovely campus in the city centre which is used daily by thousands of people. Whilst contributing to our economy and society, of course we deserve a place on the board."

Monopoly executive Graham Barnes from Winning Moves, the company producing the board, said: “Many congratulations to Perth and thank you to everyone who voted. Scotland’s ancient capital will make a great board we are absolutely sure.”
