School of the Built Environment student, Emma Watson, has won the Scottish Women in Property (WiP) Student Award 2014.

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of representing Heriot-Watt in the award scheme, and was obviously delighted to be chosen as the winner. I'm very excited to now take part in the National Awards in London this coming September.

Emma, who is in her third year of the Urban Planning and Property Development programme, won the award following an interview with a panel of high profile regional judges from industry, higher education and the WiP regional Chairman. She was awarded a £300 prize and assistance in achieving a paid summer work placement next year. Emma will go forward to the national final which will be held in Claridge's in London in September.

Emma said: "I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of representing Heriot-Watt in the award scheme, and was obviously delighted to be chosen as the winner. I'm very excited to now take part in the National Awards in London this coming September."

Lecturer Colin Elliot added: "I am delighted Emma has so deservedly won this award. However, the staff team are equally grateful that, in a busy semester, she found the time and made the effort to represent the University with such a professional performance. The School will be right behind Emma for the UK final!"
