Heriot-Watt University’s Enhancement work uses the current theme to complement developments already underway at the institution. There are two key areas of student transitions that have been identified as relevant to the University’s priorities: shorter time to completion for postgraduate research students (PGRs) and improved retention and progression of undergraduate students.
Heriot-Watt staff and student organisations submitted project proposals related to the work of the theme: currently 8 projects have been successful. These are supported by QAA funds and match-funded by Heriot-Watt.
The institutional lead is Irene Malcolm
