Student testimonials
""My time at Heriot-Watt has been absolutely wonderful.I have been fortunate to make new friends, experience new cultures and benefited the expertise of many lecturers from two campuses. Apart from the actual course, I was able to complete a Bloomberg Markets concept course in the new Bloomberg terminal. Coupled with my main courses, I believe this has set me apart from other candidates when applying for graduate jobs and help set a base to start the next chapter of my life. "
