Facts and figures

At Edinburgh Napier University, we believe in the importance of making a difference. While we’ve risen in rankings and grown in scope over the years, we’ve stayed true to our heritage as an applied technical institution. For our students and researchers, this means that learning and discovery doesn’t just take place in the lab or the classroom, it happens in the real world. That’s what makes us different. Year on year, we deliver personalised education, work-related learning and innovative research that matters—making positive change not just a distant goal but a daily reality.
