NDA pledge

University pledge to not use non-disclosure agreements to silence people

Heriot-Watt University has previously confirmed its commitment via Universities Scotland regarding the use of confidentiality clauses in Settlement Agreements (NDAs).

We have now additionally signed up to this new pledge, announced in January 2022 with the backing of the Minister for Higher and Further Education, Michelle Donelan, to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to eliminating any such behaviour in our university community.
