Pre-Foundation Summer Camp

At Heriot-Watt, we understand that last year (and this year too, honestly) has been challenging for you. School has been disrupted, and you need help to fill in the gaps where your learning has been interrupted.

With our Pre-Foundation Summer Programme, we aim to #Jumpstart and #Reinforce your pre-foundation learning and reaffirm your academic aspirations. We will help you to build your knowledge in specific domains by working through a sustainability challenge while developing 21st century skills in an environment that is positive and nurturing.

Heriot-Watt’s Pre-Foundation Summer Camp will ensure that you get to #Jumpstart your pre-university studies with confidence and are fully prepared for your academic journey at Heriot-Watt.

I wish to join the programme!
