Public lectures

The BBC's famous mission statement very neatly describes the aim of our public lectures - to inform, educate and entertain - and tickets are free.

The Bicentennial Inaugural Lecture Series celebrates our world-class research talent and is an opportunity for our newly appointed professors to share their knowledge with a wider community. 

The Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Lecture Series welcomes public speakers of the highest calibre from the worlds of industry, business and academia to Heriot-Watt's global campuses.
