Support the 1821 Appeal

The 1821 Appeal supports our university’s vision to enable talented students worldwide to access a Heriot-Watt education, whatever their background or circumstances in life.

2021 is Heriot-Watt’s 200th anniversary year and we are celebrating our history of widening access to education.

Our bicentenary milestone gives us an opportunity to work together to make a difference to our students’ lives and futures.

To realise this vision, we aim to raise £4 million to provide a programme of new opportunities for under-represented students from our communities in Scotland, Dubai, Malaysia, and beyond, enabling talented individuals to pursue their academic ambitions and achieve their goals.
