For many post-secondary students, the transition from school to university is a significant milestone. Find out how we support our Foundation students at Heriot-Watt University to cope with the challenges of adapting to a new study environment.
Using positive education practices, we prepare our students to not only excel academically but to develop emotional resilience and well-being that would enable them to have a successful start of their university life at Heriot-Watt.
