In 2012, wishing to study in a UK university, I turned toward Heriot-Watt university. University that had been recommended to me at the time by an academic advising office. I had never heard about Heriot-Watt; but I had noticed that this Uni was very present on internet and social media. Also, the University had different campuses, in Scotland (the main one), in Malaysia, in Dubai and in London. My acceptance and integration on the basis of student credits transfer has been done rapidly and easily. Once studying at Heriot-Watt London, the lectures were interesting but the academic organisation as the administration were very messy. The relationships between lecturers and academic staff were sometimes conflicting which was embarrassing for students. The academic staff turnover was incredibly high (during my degree I met more than 5 different academic advisors or registrars), and the indications given by them were most of the time strange and confusing.
In general good facilities, there are some incidents of clear abusement of PhD students and bossy behavior by lectures with he university taking no action towards the lecturers and covered the situtation for reputation reasons.
This uni is terrible went to all the lectures and learnt nothing. Teachers seemed as though they could not be bothered to teach they always ended lessons 15-30 mins early. Teachers took weeks to reply to emails. No learning took place it was a teacher reading word for word of a slide that we had access to online most people barely ever went to the lectures and I dont blame them. It seems as though everything is about money with this school take my advice and think twice before coming here waste of money waste of time
As a HW MBA alumnus with a specialism (2003 and 2005) and 6 doctor-level courses completed I am reminded everyday how much I have benefited from their most topical and challenging academic standards. It has really helped me to develop 'mental mettle'.
Not a lot on in the student union but sports facilities and clubs are good. There is WiFi across the campus and there are good food facilities on campus. The buildings are all connected and are at most a 15 minute walk from one side to the other.
Very bad value for money Depressing campus, remote from the city Very old student malls still from the seventies Bad food I paid about 7800 pounds for a Masters programme. Bad support and communication by university staff, nothing individual, very superficial. Your grade heavily depends on how smartly you chose your supervisor. Some of the staff of the School of Life Sciences cannot be bothered to reply to emails relating to their courses. Campus: Pretty depressing atmosphere, student halls in very old buildings (Campus was build in the seventies). I hope that other British Universities offer top quality for the money they take.
Heriot Watt is a good "international" university, where you can explore and experience different culture form all international students. Although I only give one star on some parts, the uni is aspiring and expending. After all, I still recommend here. Welcome to HW!
A very good standard of teaching and a very diverse range of programmes to chose from. Opportunities to travel and study abroad at Heriot watt Malaysia or dubai campus.The library is 24/7 during term time, a facility that is used by many students.
