Speaking on the occasion, Claire Roper-Browning, Head of Marketing and Student Recruitment of Heriot-Watt University Dubai campus said,“Ramadan is a time of spiritual reflection and self-improvement, but equally, it is about the importance of giving back to the community. The HWUD Community Awards are therefore our way of supporting those in need during this annual observance and we hope these awards will help deserving students build their future. 


The HWUD Community Award will be awarded to any student (foundation, undergraduate or postgraduate) applying and paying the tuition fee deposit by the required deadline of June 1, 2020.

The award is applicable for students who have received an Unconditional Offer Letter or a Conditional Offer Letter from Heriot-Watt University. Students who have received the Conditional Offer Letter must provide the remaining documents in order to proceed with receiving the Unconditional Offer Letter before the start of the academic year. Heriot-Watt University Dubai Undergraduate students completing their degree by January 2020 are also eligible to apply for this discount when applying for a postgraduate programme.
