Four years ago, I left school and started the hunt for a suitable university to go to, however I was only really torn between two.

Heriot-Watt Uni Review with images

AdvantagesLovely Campus

DisadvantagesSome modules didn't seem relevant on course

"Four years ago, I left school and started the hunt for a suitable university to go to, however I was only really torn between two. This was because I knew that I wanted to move back up Edinburgh, and I also knew that I wanted to do Information Technology. This left Heriot-Watt (actually spelt with 1 ‘R’) or Napier – the two in Edinburgh that seemed to offer this particular subject. I was allowed to apply to six universities; however I ended up choosing ..." Read review

Heriot Watt University

AdvantagesExcellent campus with superb facilities

DisadvantagesNothing major

"It has been a little while since I posted a review and that is because I have just started university. I am currently in my first year at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh studying Mechanical Engineering. This review is based on my experience of the university. While at university I am staying on campus and therefore will be able to comment on the university, its facilities, the course I am doing and the accommodation. Heriot Watt University ..."

The Scottish borders campus

AdvantagesFriendly, cute, safe, cheap, small classes.

DisadvantagesIsolated, no blokes, crap halls, few shops.

"I am in my second year at SBC (Scottish Borders Campus) doing Clothing, & I wanted to advise you of the pitfalls & rewards of the place. Firstly, it might seem obvious but this is a really small campus (about 1000 students) & it affects everything that goes on here. It is set in a small town that formerly served the textile industry with Mills & factories most of which are now extinct. There are 3 night clubs here, 'Bonds' is the most popular because ..."

MBA Distance Learning

Advantages

Disadvantages

"If you are looking to do a distance learning Master of Business Administration degree course but have committments on your time then the Herriot-Watt MBA is excellent. Unlike MBAs from other business schools you do not have to attend summer schools using up your annual vacation entitlement. Also if you are not certain of your demands from your fulltime employment the H-W MBA is ideal as you do not have assignments to complete by set dates. Unfortunately ..." Read review

I loved my en-suite

AdvantagesFlexible degrees, well respected degrees, nice new halls of res, good teaching staff

DisadvantagesFar out of the city, bad IT infrastructure, small library

"I had a good four years at Heriot Watt and don't regret going there for university, but for a university that apparently makes so much money from its research and attracts so many foreign students that pay top dollar to be there, you would think that more money could be spent on facilities for the students. The library is small and has too few books of the same type when a whole class is trying to research the same subject. The computer facilities ..." Read review
