Heriot-Watt is an integrated global university with strong links across Europe and the rest of the world. Since our foundation as the School of Arts and the world’s first Mechanical Institute in 1821, we have been outward looking pioneers of education, in pursuit of knowledge for the benefit of society.
Heriot-Watt’s heritage is rooted in industry collaboration and the University continues to deliver education and innovation through knowledge transfer, commercialisation and promoting the value of enterprise through education.
With campuses in Edinburgh, Galashiels and Orkney, Malaysia and Dubai, Heriot-Watt was named International University of the Year in 2018. The University is known for its highly employable graduates with specialisms in engineering, mathematics and computing, social sciences, textiles and design. Many of the degree programmes include industry placements and projects and are also accredited by professional bodies. The University offers one of the largest cohorts of Graduate Apprenticeship programmes in Scotland.
