The Jack Carr Fund is currently inviting applications for a limited number of small grants not expected to exceed £500. Larger grants may be awarded in special cases. The scheme is open to Heriot-Watt University undergraduate and postgraduate students currently registered in Edinburgh for a degree normally in the mathematical sciences. Postdoctorates in MACS may also apply.
Applications should be submitted to June Maxwell email@example.com by the closing dates of June 22 2021, October 8 2021, and March 3 2022.
Examples of what might qualify for an award include:
Academic study (excluding costs of student exchange visits and class trips.)
Extra-curricular study in the mathematical sciences including participation in workshops, and short study visits in the UK and elsewhere.
The Edinburgh Code Clinic will be running online this semester on Microsoft Teams. Exact slots (on Teams or face-to-face) are still to be fixed, but we expect 2 per week, starting in Week 3, and aligned with Year 1 and 2 timetables.
You may take the Graduate Certificate either as a qualification in its own right as a graduating student or as a pathway on to a PGDip or MSc programme as a non-graduating student. Graduating students may also take the Graduate Diploma by choosing courses at a higher level. Non-graduating students have more flexibility in their course choices, and can opt for some lower-level courses. The Programme Director will advise students on appropriate choices for their pathways.
You need to take 8 courses at level 9 or 10, and pass all of them at grade D or better.
You need to take at least 6 courses, with at least 4 at level 9 or higher, pass them all at grade E or better, and with an overall average of at least 40%.
You may choose to follow a non-graduating pathway within the Graduate Certificate programme, either to develop your mathematical qualifications and experience, or as entry route to a PGDip or MSc programme. Some typical pathways are given below: your choice of pathway and your course choices must be approved by the Programme Director. All pathways require the study of at least six courses, and you may study up to eight: the same tuition fee applies.

The University sends out emails to Tier 4 students each week to tell them if they recorded their attendance correctly during the previous working week.
If a Tier 4 student is contacted by their school/student/PGR office, or Director of Governance & Legal Services about poor attendance, this must be taken seriously and treated as a very urgent matter.
Tier 4 attendance recording with SafeZone is a flexible, convenient and discreet way for Tier 4 students to log their attendance each week. It is an important part of the Tier 4 student visa conditions, and checking-in each week demonstrates to UKVI that a person is a genuine student and engaged with their studies at Heriot-Watt University.
Any Tier 4 student that has a genuine reason why they cannot use SafeZone for Tier 4 attendance purposes should raise this with their school office immediately
