Combined Studies gives you the opportunity to define your own interests within the framework of an unusually broad educational experience. A Combined Studies degree is a chance to ‘write’ your own degree structure.

With guidance from a Director of Studies, you may select subjects from the full range available at Heriot-Watt. You can pursue a Combined Studies programme to Ordinary or Honours Level, on a fulltime, part-time or ‘mixed mode’ basis.

While students on Combined Studies programmes may range across a number of fields, they are assigned to a Director of Studies who provides the advice and guidance needed to help them build their own modular programmes into a coherent degree.

The Combined Studies programme is based on the principle of credit accumulation. Credits are obtained from courses across the full range of degree programmes offered by the University.
