How good is Heriot Watt for mathematics? Watch
I am now really worrying what university to put down as my insurance, I have got all offfers, but for me personally I think that this unconditional I have for maths is really tempting me for it as god knows what might happen to my grades if i do something stupid
With this in mind, I really want to find out what is Heriot Watt uni like for freshers, has it a good atmosphere and good student union etc
Finally what is its reputation like for maths graduates from Heriot watt and job prospects for maths grads???
I hope that helps, I dont know that much about it, but the University and the city appealed to me enough to put it as my FIRM.
The maths tuition is good; of course I can't compare it to anywhere else, but it was more or less as expected, challenging but achievable. You can't skip lectures and cram for exams. If you've done A-level, you may want to consider skipping first year as you will find it a drag.
As for prospects, HW has a strong outward-facing focus, so your prospects out of here as a mathematician are as good as anywhere. The opportunities to move sideways into related courses (financial maths, say) are also good.
