Only 3 sleeps until semester 2! We thought we’d take this opportunity to talk you through the support services available at Heriot-Watt. 

Our very own independent, confidential and impartial advice service! Our two Student Advisers, Ailie and Angela, are always just an email away and can answer any of your questions, big or small. From accommodation to finances, mitigating circumstances to mental health – they have you covered! 

The Wellbeing Services can be found online and in the Hugh Nesbit building, between the Shop and the Piece. They provide all sorts of wellbeing support and have something for everyone! 

The Wellbeing Services counts 7 counsellors who provide a safe and confidential space for you to talk through any issues you might be having. You can book appointments online easily! 

Also part of the Wellbeing Services, the Disability team works with you to make sure you get any extra support you might need for studying, exams and living in halls. They can also provide disability screening if you think you might have a learning difficulty such as dyslexia! 

The Student Success Advisers are recent Heriot-Watt Graduates who are here to help you get the most out of your studies. They run the Wellbeing Activities, can give personalised advice and support and run the Wellbeing Services social media accounts. Follow @hwsuccess to stay in the loop with everything wellbeing! 

  • Coaching (studentwellbeing@hw.ac.uk) 

The Coaching Service is here to help you set your own goals and achieve them. Your Coach will work with you to make sure you achieve your targets, no matter what they might be. Coaching is very useful for building confidence, anxiety and stress management, time management and many other things. 

The Chaplaincy is your home away from home, for those of all faiths and no faith. From weekly meals to virtual cuppas and chat and Sunday services, they have something for everyone! The Chaplains, Alistair and Hassan, can also provide 121 support and confidential chats.
