Great University but bad communication
Shona B
Germany, Graduate
Business Studies, 2020
Overall
I have studied at this university for a total of 5 years. All professors are very helpful and good to work with. The only issue is that IT is very far behind. Information is slow and quite often than not, what is needed to be provided at the right time is not. Grades that should be released within a month take three months. Students are left in the dark.

Pros
Good facilities, good food, good professors
Cons
Slow access to information, lack of consensus in decisions, information sharing between departments in non existent.

Fashion studies at heriot watt
Josefine B
United Kingdom, Graduate
Management Science, 2020
Overall
Heriot watt is a great place to study anything related to fashion. Unfortunately the fashion/textiles school is based in Galashiels and therefore not as accessible as a uni in Edinburgh would be but that is probably the only downside. Apart from that it's a great place to study with great teachers and interesting courses

Pros
Great staff, interesting courses and programs
Cons
Textiles school based in small town
