If you're coming to Heriot-Watt here are a few points to consider after you have accepted your offer.

Financial information

We have a generous range of bursaries and scholarships, plus the flexibility to enter your honours degree directly into the 2nd year for students with A-levels or similar depending on your qualifications.

Students from England, Northern Ireland and Wales

If you choose to study over three years, your fees will be £9,250 per year.

If you study over four years, your fees will be £9,250 for the first three years with a full fee waiver in the final fourth year. This means that the total tuition fees over the duration of the programme will be identical to those of similar degree courses elsewhere in the UK (i.e. £27,750). The bursary will be awarded automatically; you do not need to apply.

There are a range of other scholarships and bursaries available which you may be eligible for.

International students

If you are from a country outside the European Union, you will pay the tuition fee specified alongside your chosen programme in the online prospectus. The tuition fee varies for each programme.

Scottish/EU students

Due to Scottish Government limits on the number of places available, we are only able to offer vacancies to students who can be considered for a Widening Access place.  We have no vacancies for EU applicants (outside the UK) or Scottish applications not eligible for the SIMD40 initiative. See our Scottish/EU students webpage for more information.

University key dates

Our campus

Our Edinburgh campus is 6 miles from the city centre of one of the world's great capital cities. This is where the majority of our Undergraduate programmes are taught.

Our Scottish Borders campus in Galashiels is home to the School of Textiles & Design where we have some of the UK's best design and production facilities for textiles and fashion.
