Night classes, day classes, online revision tutorials...

Our network of Learning Partners offer a blend of classroom-based study and structure to your independent learning.

Many students thrive on interaction with faculty and fellow students. So for them, and for those unable to come to the UK, Dubai or Malaysia we offer the opportunity to study a complete programme, or a range of courses, with one of our many international Learning Partners. 

When you study with one of our Learning Partners you benefit from specialist support, delivered at a local level. Partners offer a diverse range of services, from full-time taught courses to revision sessions, and some are participating in our new Online Tuition Series.  All are approved by Edinburgh Business School and Heriot-Watt University; which means rigorous assessment and regular monitoring.

Learning Partners

We work closely with our Learning Partners in the management and delivery of tuition to support EBS programmes locally.  Our Learning Partners offer students value added tuition, helping students to successfully complete their programme of study.

Collaborative Partners

In addition to our Learning Partners, Edinburgh Business School has two Collaborative Partners, based in Jordan and Switzerland.  These partnerships involve a closer academic collaboration and some lead to dual awards.

The partners in our network may be public-sector institutions, private colleges and Universities or executive training centres catering for business professionals. Each partner provides a range of services. They may offer many hours of class time per course, or they may simply offer revision sessions when needed.  All provide valuable advice and tutoring and many will contextualise the learning process with local case studies and examples.  They will ensure you have access to the complete range of learning materials you need, along with access to terms and conditions and to the rules and regulations that cover the management of matriculated part-time students of Heriot-Watt University. 

Information on the academic services provided, start dates, fees, applications and admission procedures can be found by contacting the partner.  You can contact them directly using the form below.
