Our focus is on education and research directly relevant to enabling our graduates to secure and prosper in employment and that supports sustainable economic growth in Scotland and in other countries.
Edinburgh Napier had the biggest increase in applications of any non-specialist UK university at the start of 2010. Undergraduate applications have seen an 85 per cent increase between 2009/10 and 2012/13 figures. This compares with 54 per cent for the Scottish modern competitor group and 10 per cent for the whole of the UK Higher Education sector.
We provide students with industry informed courses which combine the optimum balance of theory and practice to support our graduates’ future careers.
Edinburgh Napier is the only UK Higher Education Institution to offer a programme, titled Confident Futures, which develops employability skills sought by employers.
