Welcome from the Provost
Welcome from Professor Robert Craik, Provost, CEO and Vice Principal of Heriot-Watt University Malaysia.
I am delighted to welcome you to Heriot-Watt University Malaysia in Putrajaya.
We launched our global MBA programme from the Edinburgh Business School in January 2013, followed by the introduction of a range of foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes - with full approvals from the Ministry of Higher Education and the Malaysian Qualifications Agency. In 2014/15 our portfolio continues to grow with our recent expansion into our purpose-built lakeside campus.
We offer the same high-quality education provided in the UK and at our campus in Dubai, creating opportunities for students to transfer between campuses. Students have the choice to benefit from an international experience for part of their studies, joining students in Edinburgh or Dubai for part of their degree programme. This reflects our goal to share knowledge across the globe and provide opportunities for students and researchers to build international relationships.
The University has been commended by the UK Quality Assurance Agency for the quality of its educational programmes and the strength of its partnership with students and our aim is to replicate this at our Malaysia Campus; providing an excellent on-campus student experience with a range of facilities and student accommodation nearby. We welcome students from Malaysia and beyond and offer a range of scholarships designed to encourage excellence and extend opportunities to all students who have the ability and ambition to benefit from a Heriot-Watt University degree.
