Welcome Back to Heriot-Watt!
Get Ready for Success at HWU
1 - 3 September 2021
Mature students success event
At this event, mature students (any student over the age of 21) have the opportunity to network and find out useful tips and advice from both current and previous Heriot-Watt mature students. Also, student support services and careers advisors will highlight the support available during and after University study.
In 2020, we ran our first ever online Mature Student Success event, which was very successful. Mature students who attended the event said the event was a great way to hear about the unique skills mature students have at University.
Planning for Success
- reflect on their university experience so far
- get help to identify areas to improve on and to create a plan of action to help goals
- recap on the support available throughout the academic year
- ask questions.
Mental Health and stress awareness
Our enjoyable and interactive mental health and stress awareness event highlights the importance of positive mental health at university. By talking to other people, exercising, and eating healthily our attitude can become more positive allowing us to manage stressful situations – like assessments – more effectively.
Assessment checklist launch
Whether it is your first or final year at university, you may benefit from some help in the build-up to exams and assessments. The Student Success Advisors have created an Assessment Checklist that can be a useful guide to what to do before and during an assessment.
Visit the Assessment Checklist webpage for more information.
