"I got into Heriot-Watt through clearing so hadn’t visited the campus and had no idea what to expect…the course sounded really interesting and provided a range of different opportunities (like studying abroad in Dubai). Walking around the campus the first time, it was really peaceful and attractive – I am so glad I came to Heriot-Watt!”"
