Mark from Ghana talks about his life at Edinburgh Napier University.
“Lecturers at Edinburgh Napier are experienced and they teach you how the industry really works”
Waste management is critical everywhere, as is occupational health and safety, and I can use the skills I’ve learnt here back in Ghana. The lecturers at Edinburgh Napier are experienced and they actually teach you what’s going on in the industry. They are also very friendly. I’ve made use of every support that the School has to offer. Even if a lecturer doesn’t teach me directly, I still feel I can go to their office and speak to them about anything related to my studies. I’ve also used some of the academic support services – especially in my early days here. For my first coursework, I just wanted to know how things were done here compared to where I come from so I went to discuss it and they were very helpful.
“I would describe Edinburgh as a very beautiful city”
Before I came here, I didn’t know much about Edinburgh, I didn’t know much about Scotland. Having been here eight months now I would describe Edinburgh as a very beautiful city. It’s very clean and the people here are friendly. It’s also a very compact city but it’s quite exciting with a lot of tourists.
