Heriot-Watt University is a public university based in Edinburgh, Scotland. It was established in 1821 as the world's first mechanics' institute (Royal Charter granted in 1966).

The University has five campuses including three in the UK - Edinburgh, Scottish Borders and Orkney - Dubai and Malaysia and over 30,000 students on its programmes worldwide. Ranked in the top 10% in the world for international outlook by THE, Heriot-Watt has the largest international cohort in Scotland with third of its 9,000 students coming from outside the UK. Its Go Global programme offers students the unrivalled opportunity to transfer between campuses for a truly international education.The university has a strong track record for developing industry-fit graduates thanks to their strong links to business and industry and distinctive range of degree programmes in specialist areas of science, engineering, design, business and languages. Heriot-Watt has over 30,000 students studying with at their campuses and online through distance learning. This includes11,000 on-campus students in Scotland, 4,000 in Dubai and 1,200 in Malaysia.

Our main campus to the west of Edinburgh is situated in the beautiful, purpose built parkland site, equipped with excellent modern facilities to support the students learning.

 Heriot-Watt University is renowned for its leadership on critical global issues and is recognised throughout the world for the quality of its teaching and applied research capability.Big enough to attract leading academics but small enough to give students the chance to really learn directly from them, the university offers 400 industry-informed degree programmes in its specialist areas of science, engineering, energy, business, languages and design. Connections with industry at every level develop these to match professional needs so employers get work-ready, fit-for-industry graduates.

Over 80% of its academics are engaged in the research, delivering ideas and solutions with real impact across society: using lasers to see around corners, innovating in sign language, designing the eco-friendly buildings of the future, enhancing oil extraction and securing low-carbon energy.

Knowledge creation and inter-disciplinary collaboration with academia and industry are core to remaining at the forefront of fields including energy, engineering, actuarial mathematics, photonics and robotics.
