“Heriot-Watt Uni”

published 05/08/2007

Lovely Campus

Some 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...

“Heriot Watt University”

published 28/09/2006

Excellent campus with superb facilities

Nothing 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...

“The Scottish borders campus”

published 01/05/2001

Friendly, cute, safe, cheap, small classes.

Isolated, 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...

Good

Nice campus, newer halls are good

It's a degree-mill, campus is in the middle of now...

In the two and a half years I've been here I've got the impression that all this university is a degree-mill out to squeeze money from students. They let in foreign students who can't really speak or write fluent english (which isn't really their fault) and expect them to write theses which are...

“I loved my en-suite”

published 28/07/2000

Flexible degrees, well respected degrees, nice new...

Far out of the city, bad IT infrastructure, small ...

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...

Good

A massive percentage of first year students at Herriot-Watt are living on the campus. The first year is entirely geared up for these students. I am not simply talking about the Freshers’ Fayre. I mean things like the timetable. If you are looking at a fifty-minute bus trip in from Edinburgh (rush...

“MBA Distance Learning”

published 27/07/2000

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...

“MBA by distance learning”

published 01/10/2000

Flexibility, price, content

AMBA accreditation

If you are looking for an accredited, flexible and international MBA distance learning programme, Heriot-Watt is a very interesting option. It is no easy option and it can become quite lonely since interactions are very limited. However, you'll be able to continue working full time and still...

“Distance learning - M.Ed”

published 04/02/2001

Can get where you want to go!

Hard work by yourself.

When you don't complete your education at the right age and you are facing your mid thirties with no prospects in sight, the idea of distance learning is a very appealing idea! With two children now growing up, the long, long days of being a housewife were stretching before me and I decided that...
