Edinburgh Napier University


Edinburgh Napier University is an innovative university inspired and deeply connected to the world around it. With students from more than 150 countries, the University has a reputation for the diversity of its student community, employability of its graduates and international reach.

We pride ourselves on our extensive industry connections and partnerships. Our courses are created in collaboration with industry, with many courses accredited, recognised or delivered in conjunction with our industry partners. What’s more, these links provide opportunities for research collaboration as well as work placements and graduate job opportunities for our students. Our graduates are highly valued by employers, which is why more than 95% find work or further study within 15 months of graduating (HESA 2017/18). We’ve also supported over 500 start-ups through our in-house business incubator.

The University has three campuses across Edinburgh offering state-of-the-art facilities for learning and research. All are easily accessible by public transport and home to diverse, international, collaborative communities.
