Heriot-Watt University – The International University
Heriot-Watt University is one of the leading universities of Scotland and the UK with a clear focus on technological studies. It was founded in 1821 and received the Royal Charter in 1966.
We are Scotland’s most international university. We not only attract students from all over the world to Edinburgh but we also deliver programmes across the world at our campuses in Dubai and in Malaysia, close to Kuala Lumpur, as well as to independent distance learners.
Heriot-Watt University not only boasts a welcoming and international student environment on the campus in Edinburgh but also has a campus in Dubai and a campus in Putrajaya, Malaysia, close to Kuala Lumpur. For programmes which are available on those campuses, we offer the opportunity to spend the second semester of your year on one of these campuses.
The campus is situated in park land on the outskirts of Edinburgh, with frequent busses taking you into the centre of the capital of Scotland.
Exceptional teaching facilities and our close links with industry make our Heriot-Watt Edinburgh Campus a fulfilling and stimulating environment for study, while our £7m purpose-built Postgraduate Centre is a hub for advanced learning and research.
The green campus and its associated facilities are designed to accommodate all of your possible requirements, be they academic, social, sporting, cultural, religious, transport or health related. It hosts Scotland's National Sports Performance Centre, Oriam, opened in 2017. The Students’ Association plays a key role in this regard, supported by an array of complementary services including the Accommodation Office, Student Welfare Services, International Student Advisers, Careers Service, Disability Adviser, Health Centre, Childcare and Chaplaincy.
Edinburgh - Scotland's Capital City
Edinburgh – a culturally diverse, historically significant, socially alive, environmentally aware, politically central, visually stimulating experience. In other words you will live and study in Scotland’s stunning capital – renowned for its cultural festivals, its rich learning tradition, its magnificent buildings (old and new), a unique city environment, and a youthful vigorous outlook on the world. Festivals.
Edinburgh is perhaps best known for its world famous cultural festivals and events which attract some 1.4 million visitors to the city each year. Thousands flock to enjoy the Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the international festivals devoted to films, books, jazz and blues, politics and science and, of course, the unique ‘Hogmanay’ celebrations.
