About University: Uniquely among Scottish universities, Heriot-Watt can boast near-constant sunshine, a glamorous beachside position or sky-scrapers as far as the eye can see. Admittedly, this is only if you are studying at the Dubai or Malaysia campus, but other students don't do too badly, nonetheless. The Edinburgh campus occupies 380 acres of meadow and woodland, and the Scottish borders campus in Galashiels, south of Edinburgh, is right in the very heart of the borders. Heriot-Watt emphasises career progression and flexible learning. Strengths include subjects related to the petroleum industry, brewing and distilling. Well, it is Scottish, even if it does have a campus in Malaysia and Dubai.
