New student checklist
Make sure you have read through our new student checklist below. This checklist will take you through the practical steps that you should complete or think about before you start your studies with us.
Enrolment is the process of formally joining the University and becoming a Heriot-Watt student. You agree to abide by the rules of the University and to pay any fees, and we ask you to confirm that we have your correct details.
Enrolment will open in August and can be done through the Student Self Service.
Enrolling online involves checking and updating your personal details, uploading a photograph for your student card, checking your programme and fees and agreeing to our terms and conditions. After you complete online enrolment you will need to register for your courses online. Access to course registration may vary depending on your programme, as you may require guidance before making your choices.
On completion of online enrolment you will be given access to your University email and to the myHWU Student Portal (it may take up to 24 hours to be able to access) through which you can access many other services and facilities. Therefore, we highly recommend that you complete your enrolment as early as possible, before your Welcome Week commences.
Please note you can only enrol online once you have an unconditional offer.
Bring along your original documents
Please bring along your original identity card (IC) or passport, certificates and results or transcripts for verification. Online enrolment cannot be completed without the sighting of your original IC or passport.
Your enrolment confirmation letter will be stamped once you have completed enrolment. Once you are enrolled you will have access to the University’s IT systems, facilities and resources.
You will be issued with a student identity card for the duration of your studies at Heriot-Watt University.
A charge equivalent to RM55 will be made for a replacement card in the event of loss or damage. No charge will be levied if an official police report is produced confirming that the card has been stolen.
Your original IC or passport, certificates and results or transcripts will be sighted for verification.
For any enquiries please contact the HWUM Student Service Centre at MYStudentCentre@hw.ac.uk.
