Hi Guys.

My Question is I have been offered 2nd year entry and also 3rd year entry for Heriot Watt to study a Beng in Mechanical Engineering. I am currently studying an HND in Engineering Systems at college and feel some of the modules could have been covered more in depth. Is 3rd year a continuation of 2nd year at advanced stages. Would I be safer doing 2nd year to cover everything? Also what is the timetable like is it 3 full days or half days ? My reason for this is I need to work out my travel cost.

Thanks Guys.

Hi Jack2749,

Thanks for your enquiry and congratulations on your offers to study BEng Mechanical Engineering at Heriot-Watt.

The 3rd year of the programme is mostly a continuation of the subjects studied in 2nd year, so it is certainly worth considering accepting 2nd year entry to ensure you have the necessary background. During the programme, contact time is around 16-20 hours a week and is spread over 4.5 days - nothing is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

I hope that has helped your decision, please do get in touch again if you have any further questions.

Best Wishes,
Catriona
