In addition to our Pre-Sessional English programmes to help you meet our English language requirements before you start your studies, Heriot-Watt University also provides free academic English language and study skills support drop-in sessions and workshops for students after they have enrolled through our English Gym. This service is offered at our UK, Dubai and Malaysia campuses, as well as online.

The English Gym offers:

  • One-to-one, online and in-person academic English tutorials to students who have English as an additional language, and students who use English as a first language.
  • Students can self-enroll and attend any of the drop-in sessions without prior booking.
  • Alternatively, students can be referred to this service by academic staff and personal tutors.
  • The English Gym also delivers bespoke workshops and materials for all academic departments' requests
