At Heriot-Watt it is possible for students to spend the first two years of their Undergraduate programme at our Dubai Campus and then transfer to our UK campuses for the final two years. Unlike Inter-Campus Transfers within our Go Global programme, which may be subject to availability, 2+2 students are guaranteed transfer to the UK for years three and four.

Our 2+2 Undergraduate Study Mode allows you to become a global student by experiencing living and studying in two very different and interesting countries.
