Information about the 2023 SMART Student Weekend including booking details will be sent to clubs in early September 2023.
Access to subsidised mountain skills courses and lectures is one of the key benefits of being a Mountaineering Scotland club member. As well as being able to book a place on our general mountain safety course programme, we organise training activities tailored especially for our university and college clubs.
This event is generously supported financially by Braemar Mountain Rescue Team. Please help support them in any way you can. You can do this by visiting their website - Braemar Mountain Rescue
This training weekend is an ideal opportunity for university and college club members of all abilities to increase their skill levels and to equip those in positions of responsibility - because of their experience, organisational remit or committee membership - to help expand and consolidate their knowledge and improve their confidence in their roles.
We also welcome members of student clubs who are new to hill walking, mountaineering or climbing, and wish to 'learn the ropes', setting a solid foundation of skills that they can build upon in the future and share with fellow club members.
Please read our booking and cancellation conditions before booking your place - course fees are non-refundable.
