Entry requirements

For more details on our application process, get help with your application.

These entry requirements are intended as a guide only. Please contact us or the School’s admissions tutor to find out the actual requirements for the programme you want to study.


  • If you would like to study in the UK and do not meet the entry requirements for our degree programmes, we recommend that you take an International Foundation Programme at Edinburgh College. Here you will sit Scottish Highers as well as studying academic English language. Successful completion of this will allow you to apply for a degree programme at Heriot-Watt and receive a 10% fee reduction off the first year’s tuition fees.
  • Foundation Programmes are also available at our Dubai and Malaysia campuses.


  • Tawjihiyya – students with this high school qualification are required to take a foundation programme before beginning an undergraduate degree. This leads to either 1st or 2nd year entry on a degree programme, depending on grades achieved. See our Foundation page for more information.


  • A 4-year bachelors degree in a relevant subject with a GPA of 3 out of 5 or 60% or above, will be considered.

English language requirements

If you do not meet our English language requirements, you can apply to one of our academic English programmes, which are specifically designed to prepare you with the language and study skills needed for academic study.
