Heriot Watt launch a new fully-funded Skills Scotland Scholarship programme

Posted: 20th May 2020

Through our constant dialogue with industry, Heriot Watt understands the challenges you’re facing, including dealing with the longer-term impact of COVID-19. And that’s why we’re delighted to launch a new fully-funded Skills Scotland Scholarship programme, supported by the Scottish Funding Council, for working professionals living in Scotland.

The courses on offer are new for 2020 and have been developed specifically to help businesses improve their productivity through the upskilling and re-skilling of key employees. Your employees will study online, at a pace that suits them, and have full access to our state-of-the-art online learning platform – potentially an ideal solution for many people who are adapting to flexible remote working.

The scholarship offers free access to masters-level courses from our MBA programme, across a range of key business disciplines:

  • Delivering Successful Projects
  • Leadership, Theory and Practice
  • Financial Decision Making
  • People, Work and Organisations
  • Strategic Marketing
