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

Entry requirements


International Students already in the UK studying High School qualifications, foundation/pathway programmes or bachelor programmes can be considered to transfer to Edinburgh Napier University.

Each students 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 bachelor programmes.


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

Students studying Pre-Masters courses at another UK institution should 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

Typically, students who have already studied a qualification in the UK 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.
