6th Place. Heriot-Watt University (Dubai)
Heriot-Watt University (Dubai) is a branch campus of Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh in the UK. The university was the first overseas university to open within Dubai International Academic City (DIAC).
Heriot-Watt University is licensed by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) in Dubai and all of Heriot-Watt’s degrees are accredited by Royal Charter, United Kingdom.
Although Heriot-Watt University in Scotland enjoys a prestigious status, it is not clear if the Dubai branch offers the same quality in teaching and learning. As the entry levels are set at basic pass level whether it is IB, GCSE or local high school systems, this could imply that the Dubai branch campus may not enjoy the same position as its parent campus.
