Lillian Zwiers, MSc International Tourism and Marketing Management

"The best part about Edinburgh Napier is probably the location. The campuses are in such great areas, not to mention they are beautiful!"

The best part about Edinburgh Napier is probably the location. The campuses are in such great areas, not to mention they are beautiful! The facilities at all three campuses are wonderful, the library is full of resources and has everything a student needs. They also have a Starbucks cafe at each campus, which is a plus. Bainfield is also a wonderful place to stay and is just a short walk to the city centre, which is very handy when you want to do touristy things.

"The Edinburgh Napier staff are extremely helpful and very friendly, whenever you have any sort of problem they will be there."

I always wanted to study abroad and experience all the highs and lows of being completely out of my comfort zone. After a lot of research on where I wanted to study, I chose to apply to Edinburgh Napier for their excellent tourism programme, the variety of societies and sports to chose from, and the wonderful city it is located. I chose to study tourism and marketing because I have always had a passion for travel and how different locations get tourists to go there. Growing up, I was especially fascinated with how Disney runs their company and pretty much anything to do with them.

The Edinburgh Napier staff are extremely helpful and very friendly, whenever you have any sort of problem they will be there.  I am really looking forward to the rest of my course because I already love it so much!

"Edinburgh is truly a wonderful place to live, there is so much to do that you can never get bored."

Edinburgh is truly a wonderful place to live, there is so much to do that you can never get bored. My favorite part of the city is walking along Princes Street and getting to see the beautiful Edinburgh Castle but also being able to hit the best shops. Make sure to do all of the touristy things when you get here and take pictures. They create wonderful memories and your family will love to see them!

"I know Edinburgh Napier will help me achieve my goals because they offer great work experience and have wonderful professors."

My goal is to work at Disney as an Imagineer, it sounds like it is engineering, but there are over 100 different specialties of Imagineering. I know Edinburgh Napier will help me achieve my goals because they offer great work experience and have wonderful professors. Edinburgh Napier's Business school is one of the best, and I am so glad I get to study here!
