Heriot-Watt University has campuses in Edinburgh, the Scottish Borders, Orkney, Dubai and Malaysia. Each site used to operate almost independently in ensuring student and staff safety until Security Services were consolidated as part of a major restructuring program.
Heriot-Watt University has been named as International University of the Year by “The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018”. It was the first British university to open a campus in Dubai where it now has almost 5,000 students and staff; and its Malaysia campus has around 3,000 students.
Travel is also an increasingly important part of life for everyone at the Edinburgh-based university where undergraduates now have the option of spending their third year at any campus.
