The best way to fully appreciate the great facilities that each campus has to offer is to visit us and see for yourself.

Explore our campuses and you’ll discover facilities and support that ensures the high quality student life that you’d expect from one of the UK’s leading universities. 

Heriot-Watt Open Days are organised throughout the year and a great opportunity to find out more about our world-class, research-informed teaching and learning experiences. There’s the chance to talk to people who are just as passionate about your subject, as you are. 

We also arrange individual visits, where you can take a guided tour and possibly meet key personnel, and group visits for schools and colleges. Our Education Liaison Office is also happy to visit schools and colleges to discuss what we offer.

If you can't make it along to visit us, we have frequent online chats giving you the opportunity to speak to academics and students. You can also take a virtual tour of our campuses and discover what awaits.

Open days

Throughout the year, we hold open days for prospective students to visit our campuses. Find out when our next open days will take place.

Online chats

We hold live chats where you can talk to student advisers, admissions staff and academics and ask questions  about coming to Heriot-Watt.

Individual & applicant visits

If you can't attend the formal open day, you can arrange an individual visit to the campus before you apply. Once you've applied, we'll invite you to a special applicant open day.
