Our international work

We believe that giving our staff, students, researchers and partners an international perspective improves graduate employability, enriches the student experience, helps us to understand and solve global problems and has a positive impact on communities – both locally and around the world.

We have almost 8,000 international students from 150 countries, representing 40% of our overall student population. Globally we have around 5,500 students studying online or with one of our partners in China, Hong Kong, Myanmar, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Switzerland.

Our new strategy, Shaping our Future: Driving Distinctiveness, will continue to build on the foundations and progress achieved through Strategy 2020, and will continue to build Edinburgh Napier’s reputation as an internationalised university with a global outlook.
