We do a lot of things, sometimes many of them behind the scenes so you might not always be aware. We'll update this page with our "wins", milestones, and things we've done that will make an impact while you study at Heriot-Watt, so you can see everything that the Student Union does for you throughout the year.

  • September 2022

  • Late Enrolment Fees Waived - We know that some students are facing delays with enrolling, which can be incredibly stressful. We've worked with the Univeristy to stop late enrolment fees until 26th September which will hopefully enable students to resolve the issues they're facing that are stopping them from enrolling. We still encourage students to enrol as soon as possible (so you don't miss anything!) but this will hopefully help those that need it.

  • Black Voices Project Scholarships - Our Black Voices Project secured funding from the University's 1821 Appeal to create 40 scholarships worth £1,000 each, to provide increased support that will enable talented Black and Ethnic Minority (BME) students overcome the barriers they face to fulfilling their academic capabilities and realising their potential

  • SBC Campus Allotment - We were pleased to work with the University to launch the SBC allotments, allowing students to sign up for their own mini-plot of land to grow their own veg.

  • OCTOBER 2022

  • Society Shortlisted for Engineering Society of the Year - We're really proud that the Robotics Society were shortlisted for Engineering Society of the Year, up against societies from Glasgow and Bristol. 

  • Adapted to Change - To mark World Metal Health Day, we hosted a day of talks, workshops and tasters support your wellbeing.

  • Lecture Recordings Are Back- You asked and we listened! Molly, your VP Education and Alba, the Student Voice Coordinator worked with the University to get you your recorded lectures back. From Week 7, where applicable, lectures will be recorded for those of you who rely on them. 

  • NOVEMBER 2022

  • Sustainability Week - As part of our annual Sustainability Week, we hosted a series of awareness events and activities including giving away free travel cups, upcycling workshop, a repair cafe to fix your devices and talks.

  • Community Larder - To launch Sustainability Week, we opened our Community Larder, stocked with a range of household essentials for students who need them. There is also a book swap where students can bring a book and leave a book.
