Our courses

English language

For undergraduate courses, you should have completed your WAEC/National Examination Council (NECO) English Language with a grade C6 or better within the last two years.

You do not need to take an English language test (for example IELTS) for postgraduate courses, as long as your bachelors degree was taught and examined in English.


Students from Nigeria are considered for our African Postgraduate Scholarship and there are a number of different scholarships available to help reduce the cost of studying at Edinburgh Napier University.

Student Testimonial

While studying for my undergraduate degree I developed a passion and an urge to work in the environment sector, especially in the area of sustainability.

Why choose Edinburgh Napier?

We'll give you the skills and practical experience to take you where you want to go.
