Heriot-Watt University is now providing admission based on predicted grades

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, board exams across the world have been delayed or cancelled. To make the transition from high school into university smooth and less stressful, Heriot-Watt University Dubai is offering students the opportunity to apply for their chosen undergraduate programme based on school-assessed grades. School-assessed grades include mock exams or pre-boards, as well as teacher-predicted scores.

Our recruitment and admission teams will work closely with every applicant to review their predicted grades. All decisions will be made with a guaranteed quick turnaround of 12-24 hours. If a student is unable to maintain the school-assessed grades in the final results awarded by the board, the University will neither downgrade nor retract our study offer. Students can visit us at our campus in Knowledge Park or connect with us virtually to learn more about the programmes offered, the eligibility criteria and the admission process, as well as existing scholarships.
