Prospectuses

Heriot-Watt University will make all reasonable efforts to deliver the programmes described in the prospectuses.

Prospective students should be aware that it is occasionally necessary to modify, discontinue or combine programmes. This may be necessary for a number of reasons such as low enrolments, illness or departure of staff, industrial action or reduction of funding.

The University does not provide education on a commercial basis, and is dependent on public and charitable funds that require the University to deploy its resources efficiently and rationally. Changes will only be made if the University reasonably considers it to be necessary.

If a programme is discontinued, the University will use reasonable endeavours to provide a suitable alternative programme and will take all reasonable steps to minimise disruption; allow a student to withdraw without penalty if a programme is cancelled or significantly varied, with an appropriate refund of tuition fees and deposits.
