Heriot-Watt in Dubai

Heriot-Watt University was the first overseas university to set up in Dubai International Academic City, offering top quality British education to students and executives from the Gulf and further afield.

After 180 years’ provision of world-renowned education in the UK, Heriot-Watt was invited to Dubai to provide specialised programmes in the fields of management, engineering, built environment, food science and fashion.

Our programmes

Our Dubai study programmes range from Masters programmes in disciplines as challenging and diverse as Petroleum Engineering, Construction Project Management, Management, Energy, Information Technology, and the world-renowned Edinburgh Business School MBA, to undergraduate degrees in Management, Construction, Quantity Surveying and Engineering.

At our Dubai Campus, you will gain a degree that is taught and examined to the same exacting standards as on our UK campuses, preparing you for success in your chosen career.

All of our programmes are taught by our own faculty, many of whom are permanently located in Dubai, supplemented by visiting experts in key fields.
