Study Abroad at Heriot-Watt

Our Study Abroad (Visiting Student) Programme is ideal if you are a student from outside Europe who would like to spend one or two semesters in Scotland earning credits to transfer back to your home institution.

You'll find Heriot-Watt University an incredibly welcoming and friendly place to visit. You'll study alongside our UK-based European students and our international students from all around the word who make up our culturally diverse student cohort.

We have a strong reputation in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, management and languages and offer courses in all of these subjects at our Edinburgh Campus.  Our School of Textiles & Design, based in Galashiels, is the second oldest textile institution in the world and offers unrivalled specialist facilities to study fashion and textile design.
