Entry requirements, scholarships and keeping in touch for international students residing in the United Kingdom.

Entry requirements


If you are an international student already in the UK studying High School qualifications, foundation/pathway programmes or bachelors programmes you may be considered to transfer to Edinburgh Napier University.

Each case will be considered on an individual basis, you can contact us with copies of your qualification transcripts and we can advise if you would be eligible for our bachelors programmes.


You will be eligible to apply if they have gained a Bachelor (Honours) degree from a recognised UK institution with a 2:2 or above.

If you are studying Pre-Masters courses at another UK institution, contact us with copies of your qualification transcript and we can advise if you would be eligible to progress to our Masters programmes.

English language

For those who have already studied for a qualification in the UK it is likely you will not be required to sit an English language test. In some circumstances, we may require an English test, you can find the full list of requirements on our English language requirements page.

We offer various pre-sessional English language programmes for applicants who have test results below the programme requirement. Some courses may require a higher English language score. Please search for the course you're interested in to find out more.
