Heriot-Watt University soars up rankings to scoop UK No 1 and Scotland No 1 for students

Heriot-Watt University has come top in the UK for student experience and has been named Scottish University of the Year – the same week as being voted by students as best university in Scotland.

The National Student Survey (NSS) 2012 has revealed the University’s meteoric rise in clinching Number 1 university in Scotland (up from Number 3 last year) and Number 4 university in UK (up from Number 29 last year).

Also released this week, The Sunday Times University Guide 2013 names Heriot-Watt as Scottish University of the Year for the second year running – and it also becomes the UK University of the Year for student experience.

Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Steve Chapman, said, “Being Scottish University of the Year, Number 1 in UK for student experience and voted Number 1 in Scotland by students is a fantastic hat-trick.

“At Heriot-Watt, we put great effort into exceptional student experience by striving to consistently deliver excellent facilities, teaching, and support services.

“These positive results represent a real strength of feeling among our students and real professionalism on the part of the staff.”

Mike Ross, President of Heriot-Watt University Student Union, said “These results represent the excellent work that has been done by students and staff working together to enhance the student experience.”
