Heriot-Watt University 

Heriot-Watt is a specialist, pioneering University, with a global presence, world renowned, innovative research and highly employable graduates.

From a pioneering institute born out of the Scottish Enlightenment, today we are shaping the world, a global university, a leader in transnational education. Echoing our founding principles of tailoring our curriculum to the needs of modern society, we are a powerful driver of the economy wherever we are in the world. In all of our communities we create a distinct university experience, a springboard for an international career.

As one of the most progressive and international institutions based in Scotland, you will have the opportunity to thrive, both personally and academically during your time with us.

Our strategy is based on our heritage, our expertise, our relevance, and our global presence. We know what we are good at, and we know we have created exciting new infrastructure and opportunities for ourselves; now we must make the very most of them, imaginatively and energetically.

Our strategy has been developed by our global community of staff, students, alumni and partners. It is not the strategy of a university centred in one location with an international outlook, but of a global university based in multiple locations each successful and all connected. It is based on our special character and positions us to tackle the new challenges that face higher education in the period ahead.

95% of Heriot-Watt students are in employment or further study within six months of graduation and we are ranked joint 17th in the UK and 1st in Scotland for graduate salaries. (TheTimes/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019).

The very nature of a Heriot-Watt education ensures you will have the opportunity to develop leadership skills and confidence to be specialists in your chosen fields and professions.  Global companies actively seek out our graduates as they are work-ready
