Heriot-Watt rises in THE Student Experience Survey

Heriot-Watt University has moved up eleven places in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2013, from forty first to thirtieth place in the UK and fifth in Scotland, up from ninth last year.

The survey is based on the views of students across the country, taken between October 2011 and July 2012. Participants were asked to rate their institution, based on a seven-point scale, against 21 criteria, ranging from campus environment and student welfare to helpfulness of staff and class sizes.
