We all want to be considered an expert at what we do. Test scores and essay feedback is one way to measure your expertise, but it's not the only thing employers want to see. They also want to know what you have contributed to your discipline; how have you improved your field of study?
WE KNOW YOU WANT TO BE AN OUTSTANDING GRADUATE.
We understand you need opportunities to grow, learn, and show future employers what you can contribute beyond your test results. So we've created the position of School Member of Parliament. You can apply to be a School Member of Parliament today!
Every day we work directly with the University to enhance your experience as a student at Heriot-Watt, and YOU can be a key part in the process of improving the learning and teaching in your school. And don't worry, you won't have to do it alone - we promise! You'll have the full support of the Full Time Officer team, Parliament, our Class Reps and School Officers, as well as the staff at the Union!
