Heriot-Watt University’s recently installed Chancellor, Dr Robert M Buchan, is delighted to invite his fellow Alumni to join him at a number of events as part of his first tour taking place in November 2013. In addition to presiding over the graduation ceremonies in Dubai, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong, Dr Buchan will be attending the Alumni celebrations that take place in the countries he visits.

The Chancellor is an enthusiastic supporter of the Watt Club, the University’s Alumni Association. He is very much looking forward to having the opportunity to meet with as many graduates as possible during his travels to share his vision for his Chancellorship.

Joining him on the tour will be Heriot-Watt’s Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Steve Chapman. This is the first time these key figures have both attended our international graduations and Alumni events, so it is a unique opportunity to speak to them about the University and the achievements of the past year.

The Watt Club is a truly international network of Heriot-Watt Alumni, and our graduates from across the globe would be most welcome at any of the dinners below, whether you are a resident of the country or not.
