Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

15 semester credits

Students who choose to study abroad in Edinburgh at Heriot-Watt University with API will enroll in courses with Scottish and other international students. Heriot-Watt specializes in a variety of science and engineering subjects, but is also a leader in subjects such as brewing and distilling, business, fashion, design, and textiles.

Heriot-Watt University award credits based on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). Students should aim to take 60 SCQF credits per semester. Each course is normally worth 15 SCQF credits, meaning that students would take four courses per semester. Each course is roughly equivalent to 3.75 U.S. credits (if  students are taking 30 U.S. credits in an  academic year). Courses can usually be taken from first, second and third-year options (subject to pre-requisites).

TRANSCRIPTS

API students receive their transcript from Heriot-Watt University upon completion of their program.
