Edinburgh Napier experience

In August 2015 we invited bloggers on a three-day trip to experience Edinburgh Napier.


You will need to make sure that you have applied for Student Finance in good time- each area of the UK has its own Student Finance provider, and you will need to apply through them.

Students from Scotland and the EU will ordinarily have their fees covered by the Scottish Government, but you still need to apply for this, as well as maintenance support, through Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS).

Students from England, Wales and Northern Ireland are charged £9000 per year of study for the first 3 years (4th year is on us!). Your local student finance provider ordinarily provides a tuition fee loan as well as maintenance support. You may also be eligible for our Access Bursary or our Merit Bursary, providing you with up to £3000 per year! 


You can apply for Accommodation once you have an unconditional offer which you have firmly accepted. For most students this will happen on Results Day in August. Once your place is confirmed, you must complete the online application form via the University website, details of which will be sent to you nearer the time. You will need your Edinburgh Napier Number, which will be included on all correspondence from the Admissions Team, as well as a deposit payment of £500.

Matriculation and induction

Over the summer, you will receive a Welcome email letting you know when your Induction sessions are, who your Programme Leader is and about your university ID card. Matriculation takes place online from mid-August. Once you have completed the online matriculation process you will be able to set up your university email address and familiarise yourself with Moodle, the university’s online learning tool.
