Student Testimonial

Our international student talks about their experience of studying at
Edinburgh Napier.

Yi Zheng - MSc Property and Construction Management

I chose Edinburgh Napier primarily for the course. It’s very practical and beneficial for my future career.

As the University is a partner institution of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, my degree is accredited by RICS. It closely integrates research with current working practice.

The culture and study methods here are completely different. We have been given many opportunities to think on our own and express ourselves freely. I feel more confident now when coming across difficult tasks. My experience here has trained me to be calm, solve problems one by one and prioritise.

Edinburgh Napier puts more emphasis on students’ future careers. We have many opportunities to work with real companies, such as on a placement. The courses are very practical and worthwhile. Sometimes our lecturers invite excellent entrepreneurs in to speak, giving us the opportunity to access up-to-date, practical knowledge which will be useful in our future career. The collaborative way we study is also beneficial, such as case studies and team work. Workshops on careers and interviews organised by the University really help a lot too.

This is also an international university. Students and lecturers come here from many different countries giving us a good chance to interact with different cultures and broaden our horizons. I’ve met many people from various places around the world. Edinburgh is an international city and it is a valuable experience to meet and interact with different cultures in one place.
