More about open days

An open day gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the university experience and discover more about the subject(s) you are interested in studying. 

You can meet with staff and students to find out how your chosen subject is taught at Heriot-Watt and explore our beautiful 380-acre Edinburgh campus to get a feel for what student life has to offer here. 

Our campus will be buzzing with activities and events and it’s your chance to find out as much as you can about Heriot-Watt University, alongside people who may even become some of your closest friends during your studies here. Prepare to be inspired and get excited about your Higher Education options!
