Whether you're studying on one of our campuses, at an institution in your own country, or independently through distance learning, we'd like to welcome you to the Heriot-Watt University community!
We hope you'll thoroughly enjoy the experience of being a Heriot-Watt student, where you'll have the opportunity to thrive, both personally and academically at one of the world's most progressive and international institutions.
There are some important enrolment procedures that we need you to take part in, but everything you need to know is explained here.
For our on-campus students, we also have lots of great events lined up to help you find your way around, meet new people and make new friends.
If you're studying at our Edinburgh, Scottish Borders or Orkney campuses, then you'll find everything you need to know here: from what you need to do before you arrive, to enrolment and what’ll happen during your first few days.
If you're studying at our Dubai Campus, then you can find out here how to part-enrol online before you arrive, directions to the campus, and details of what will happen once you arrive on campus.
If you're studying independently through distance learning, or studying with an Approved Learning Partner institution in your own country, you can find out how to enrol and get connected to Heriot-Watt services off-campus here.
