Heriot-Watt University Visiting SI-UK Coimbatore
Heriot-Watt University is the eighth oldest higher education institution in the UK and originated as the School of Arts of Edinburgh, the world’s first mechanics institute, in 1821. In 1966 it became a university by Royal Charter. More than a third of Heriot-Watt’s 7,000 Edinburgh campus students are from outside the UK and this international focus is also demonstrated by the 10,000 students from 150 different countries worldwide studying on its international programmes.
The University boasts multiple campuses, with three in Scotland, one in London, an MBA campus in Malaysia and another in Dubai. Heriot-Watt won an award from the Scottish Council of Development and Industry because of its international focus and it also performs well in physical sciences, mathematics, business and management, engineering and the built environment.
Higher Education Statistics Agency figures for 2013/14 graduates showed that almost 95% of Heriot-Watt first degree graduates were in employment or further study within six months of graduating, an increase on the 92.6% for 2012/13.
