Our graduates

Our graduates possess an enviable mix of knowledge, skills and abilities that make them highly attractive to graduate employers.

The School has an excellent record for graduate employment, above the UK average, which reflects the fact that we continue to develop and enhance our programmes with the needs of students, business and industry uppermost in mind.

The range of careers that our graduates are equipped for is wide ranging - CEOs, managers, accountants, marketers, dipolmats, envoys, interpreters, journalists, and tv reporters to name but a few. Some of the organisations our graduates go on to work for include the UN, the EU, the World Bank, national and local governments as well as major companies such as Amazon, DHL, Goldman Sachs, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Ralph Lauren, Zara, and the Guardian newspaper.

Whether it is working as a translator at the United Nations, Chief Executive of ITV - the UK's biggest commercial television network, or as Deputy Director and Chief Analyst of the UK Prime Minister's Strategy Unit ,we are justly proud of our graduates' success and the role which Heriot-Watt plays in their success.
