Heriot-Watt University Virtual Open Days

At Heriot-Watt University we will be hosting Virtual Open Days on Saturday 26 September and Saturday 24 October (Edinburgh Campus). For Fashion and Textiles programmes (Galashiels Campus) the events will take place on Friday 2 October and Friday 6 November. I’d be delighted if your pupils who might be thinking about studying at university could join us.

The Virtual Open Day will take place on an App called Guidebook which can be downloaded on Apple and Android devices. There will be subject and information webinars taking place throughout the day and when you register there is an easy guide showing you how to access the event and subject webinars via the Heriot-Watt Guidebook app.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions. Hopefully we might be able to welcome you and your pupils to our Campuses soon!

Help with College Applications

If any pupils or their parents/carers require help with college applications please email and I can either email them or call them to talk them through it.

I will try to contact our UCAS applicants who have not responded to their offers in case they loose them and likewise our college applicants. I have access to both track systems.
