Students Studying On-Campus


Heriot-Watt University has introduced a new policy on examinations taking place in different time zones.  In order to manage exam schedules across the world, students studying on-campus at one of the UK campuses or at the Dubai or Malaysia campuses should note that from academic year 2013/14 the start times of examinations has changed as follows:

UK Campuses: exams will start at 09:00, 13:00 and 17:00 hours
Dubai Campus: exams will start at 12:00 and 14:00 hours
Malaysia Campus: exams will start at 09:00 and 13:00 hours

Students who study on campus are also reminded of the University Senate decision that examinations should always be taken at the campus they are studying at.   Requests to sit exams off-campus or at an alternative campus will not be considered, other than in exceptional circumstances.  Exceptional circumstances do not include requests to sit off-campus due to travel arrangements or employment/other commitments.
