Study in the UK

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 us 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 our 7,000 students are from countries outside the UK, bringing a real international flavour to our community. Along with our 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.

Look up your home country to get information on studying at Heriot-Watt, as well as details on visas and immigration specific to your country.

Our 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.

We welcome all exchange students, whether you want to study here for just a full year or even a semester as part of your wider student career.
