About Us

Heriot-Watt is a key institution in a major international city, making an important contribution to Edinburgh's world reputation for education, business and research. Studying with them will allow you to realise the benefits of living in this world class city while also giving you easy access to all that Scotland has to offer: great hospitality, stunning scenery, and a rich cultural heritage. On campus you’ll find one third of their 9,000 students are from countries outside the UK, bringing a real international flavour to our community. Along with their Scottish students, you will share your academic and social life with people from over 150 countries, giving you a great opportunity to learn about other cultures and build friendships that stretch across the globe.

Their flexible study options allow you to gain a Heriot-Watt University qualification either by Independent Distance Learning or through one of their Collaborative Partners or Approved Learning Partners: The University has a number of highly valued collaborative partnerships with universities around the world. These are typically arrangements whereby Heriot-Watt University, in partnership with another awarding body, agree to provide a single programme of study, which leads to either a joint or dual award. Their network of Approved Learning Partners (ALPs) comprises 43 overseas learning institutions in 35 countries. Heriot-Watt has been providing Independent Distance Learning (IDL) for over 20 years and offers a wide range of professionally oriented programmes in this format. There are currently over 14,000 Heriot-Watt students studying our IDL programmes as both independent learners or with the support of our Approved Learning Partners.

Their Visiting Student Programme is ideal if you are a student from outside Europe who would like to spend one or two semesters in Scotland earning credits to transfer back to your home institution. They have a wide variety of Undergraduate courses to choose from with over 150 programmes and over 140 programmes for Postgraduate Study.
