Edinburgh and the University

Edinburgh is a great location for anybody to study. Home to around 100,000 students, it’s one of the most student-friendly and safest cities in the UK.

Edinburgh Napier University has an excellent academic reputation and a proven track record of equipping our students for success, with 94.4% of our students in work or further study within six months of graduating, according to the Higher Education Statistics Authority.

We have three main campuses across the city with good transport links and some of the best learning and teaching facilities in Scotland.

We also have a range of accommodation options for undergraduate students, or we can help you find suitable accommodation in the private market.

Come along to an open day and see the city and the University for yourself.


We understand that the transition to university can be a significant change for many students. We support students, parents and carers on each stage of their Edinburgh Napier journey, from pre-application, throughout their studies and after graduation.
