Heriot-Watt University is about to embark on the next phase of its Enhancement-Led Institutional Review (ELIR), with the Planning Visit on 30 January 2020, and the Review Visit over 16-20 March 2020. 

The Review covers all of the University’s credit-rated provision across all modes and locations and the experience of all students (UG, PGT, PGR).

The ELIR Team has now notified the University of the Early Themes which it wishes to explore during the Review. The themes can be accessed on the ELIR Sharepoint site. A further update on the Review Themes will be provided after the Planning Visit.
