Why study at Heriot Watt?
A history rooted in industry and commerce
For almost two centuries we’ve remained true to the values of George Heriot and James Watt – the two giants of industry and commerce who give our university its name. Our foundations are built on practical, applied learning. Education that meets the needs of global industry and enables our students to fulfil their career aspirations.
Applied study for the real world
We shape tomorrow’s work-ready, industry-fit graduates and postgraduates. We connect with industry at every level and develop programmes to match their needs. Real issues, real projects, real research – so our students get practical, real-life experience and the employer gets work- ready industry-fit graduates.
A hands-on approach to teaching
We know practical, applied learning, research and teaching inside-out. It’s what we’ve always done. By engaging with business on real issues, real projects, and real research – our students get practical, real-life experience and the employer gets industry-fit graduates.
We’re big enough to attract some of the leading experts in their fields and we’re small enough to give our students the chance to learn from them – not at arms-length, but hands-on.
Highly employable graduates
We give our students a real taste of things to come in their careers – they don’t just know what to do, but they also know how to do it. It’s why we rank 15th in the UK for average starting salary of £23,285 and 94% of students are in employment or further study within six months of graduation.
A truly global experience
We provide a global perspective and experience – our academic and student body is a diverse international mix with 1/3 of our students at our Scottish campus coming from overseas. We have campuses in key locations across the world in Malaysia and Dubai as well as the UK – offering our students the unrivalled opportunity to transfer between campuses and obtain a truly global education.
