HERIOT-WATT University is a top ranking university offering high-quality education in a wide array of programmes, including the Accounting and Business Finance programme, at foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

These programmes are fully furnished to ensure students are prepared to kick-start a promising career.

According to the Guardian University Guide 2018, the university was ranked first in Scotland and in the Top 10 in the UK for Accounting and Finance as well as other programmes including Building and Town & Country Planning, Economics and Chemical Engineering, and Business Management & Marketing.

“Heriot-Watt University offers highly recognised degrees and provides the maximum number of exemptions for professional accounting papers by relevant professional bodies, such as the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Institute of Charted Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW),” declared Sarah Hannah Sharil Muha.

“The university provides a conducive ambience for students to develop and enhance their social skills,” she added.

When asked what she enjoyed most about studying in Heriot-Watt, she said, “I have a sense of appreciation towards the knowledge gained and opportunities in making new friends with the same interests as I do.

“Students are exposed to the issues and current dealings of the global and local finance industry, which gives them an insight into possible career pathways.”

The university is also renowned for its commitment to provide students with invaluable industry-relevant opportunities and links.

“Heriot-Watt partners with professionals and multinational companies to organise talks and allows them to share their industry experience.

“Additionally, annual career fairs are often conducted to enable students to engage with potential companies,” Sarah added.

When asked how potential students can get the most out of studying there, she advised:

“The rule is to be open-minded and to get out of your comfort zone to gain experience.

“Heriot-Watt University is a great place to build confidence. It encourages one to shatter the glass ceiling.

“Definitely, graduating from such a distinguished university will give you an upper-hand.”

Heriot-Watt University also provides students with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with its inter-campus transfer programme, Go Global.

This programme enables students to transfer to any one of its five campuses in the UK, Dubai and Malaysia for a period of time during their studies.

The programme is unique in that there is little to no academic barrier as all Heriot-Watt campuses use similar syllabi.
