Student life at Heriot-Watt

As well as having our own new Malaysian Campus there are a total of 400 additional students from Malaysia studying towards a Heriot-Watt University degree. We have a thriving population of 90 students studying at our Edinburgh Campus and we also have a few students at our Scottish Borders and Dubai campuses.

The most popular programmes for Malaysian students at our Edinburgh campus are:

We hold a graduation ceremony each autumn in Kuala Lumpur, and we also have an active branch of the Watt Club in Malaysia, which hosts annual anniversary dinners and many more activities.

Student societies

The Malaysian Bruneian Singaporean Student Union Edinburgh (MABSSUE) would be happy to hear from anyone interested in studying in the city, and they hold annual welcome activities to help you settle in!
