Edinburgh Napier University delivers the skills and experience that matter. It combines professional know-how with an academic approach and work-related learning to help its students succeed beyond university. Meanwhile, its research shapes the world around us, improving lives in Scotland and across the globe.
Named after mathematician John Napier, the inventor of logarithms in the 1500s, it has proudly gone from Napier Technical College to Edinburgh Napier University. Offering more than 250 undergraduate and postgraduate courses, it now has nearly 20,000 students from more than 140 countries studying on campus in Edinburgh, online and at partner universities worldwide.
The University is proud that more than 95 per cent of its students are in work or further education within six months of graduation, while the most recent UK-wide Research Excellence Framework reported that more than half of Edinburgh Napier’s research is world-leading or of international excellence.
