Dubai Campus students

If you're studying at our Dubai Campus, you can find out here how to enrol online before you arrive, as well as maps and directions to the campus, and information on what will happen once you arrive on campus.

Before you arrive: Enrol online

Enrolling online involves updating your personal details and uploading a photograph for your student identity card before you arrive at the University to complete your enrolment on campus.

If you are an international student you will also need to enter your visa details when you enrol online. You'll still need to bring your visa and passport with you to enrol on campus.

If you have not been given an unconditional offer, you may not be able to enrol online, but you can do this when you arrive on campus.

How to enrol online

You can enrol online


Login by entering your:

  • Heriot-Watt Person ID (found on any recent correspondence from us)
  • PIN number (your date of birth in the format ddmmyy eg 010395 for 1 March 1995).

The first time you login, you will be asked to change your PIN. Please keep these details safe, as you'll need them the next time you login.

Upload a photograph

You can upload a photograph for your student identity card. This should be a clearly identifiable passport-style photograph taken against a cream or light grey background. If you can't upload a photograph when you enrol online, you can bring a photo with you to your enrolment completion event.
