"I got a sponsorship for planning from Trinidad & Tobago's government and was able to choose anywhere in the world to study. I chose Heriot-Watt because it was well accredited for the Built Environment, and had good research aims. I also saw that it had branches all over the world, including one in Trinidad."
"Scotland looked like a really interesting place to study and the School of the Built Environment has world recognition so I thought why not go to the best! When I came I had so much fun, I came two weeks early just to be a tourist, I think that it's such a beautiful place."
"It's the best three years of my life so far. As a planning student I have a lot of best practice to pull from by being in Edinburgh. I love the travelling aspect too, they include this in the course. In the third year we went to Amsterdam and did a European regional study there, so it's those opportunities, I love those things."
"This is an excellent university in all aspects, in terms of educational quality it's top rated. My lecturers have done a lot of research, they have links with people who can assist you, all of the courses are accredited so it meets world class standards."
"I love Heriot-Watt because of the greenery. Another excellent thing is the diversity, it's an international campus. A lot of things are always happening here, it never gets monotonous, there are so many types of activities, be it academic, sports, everything. It's just a well rounded campus, I couldn't have made a better choice honestly."
