Heriot Watt University Foundation Year

Heriot Watt University Foundation Year

UK campuses

Unfortunately at the current time we do not offer a Foundation Programme at our Scottish campuses.  If you want to study in the UK and do not meet the entry requirements for our degree programme, we recommend that you take the International Foundation Programme at Edinburgh College.  Here you will sit for Scottish Highers as well as studying academic English language.  Please ensure you select the correct higher subjects for the degree programme you wish to take. E.g. for Engineering you will need to have higher Maths and Physics or Chemistry.

If you take the Edinburgh College Foundation programme and pass with the required grades, you will be accepted into our degree programme and will be awarded a 10% fee reduction off the first year’s tuition fees.

We can also consider students who do their foundation programme elsewhere in the UK but this will depend on the programme content and the grades achieved.

Dubai Campus and Malaysia Campus

Alternatively you could do your foundation study at one of our international campuses.  In Dubai, we offer the Degree Entry Programme and in Malaysia we offer our Foundation Programme. Successful completion of either of these programmes would allow you to continue your Heriot-Watt degree studies at any of our campuses.

If you need further guidance on your study plans, please contact the International Office at enquiry.int@hw.ac.uk or on +44 131 451 3707.
