General Info

Edinburgh Napier University offers industry informed courses which combine the optimum balance of theory and practice to equip graduates for success in today’s competitive global job market. 92.3% of our graduates are in work or further study within six months of leaving. With over 17,000 students from over 110 countries, we are an international University and are also proud to be the largest UK provider of higher education in Hong Kong

Edinburgh Napier University is committed to developing confident, employable graduates with effective attitudes to knowledge, learning, citizenship and the world of work.  This is embedded in the university vision to “have an international reputation for the employability of our graduates and for expertise which can be used directly to enhance the lives and prospects of people and their communities”.

The Get On-Board@Napier Programme helps Edinburgh Napier University do exactly that! To ensure that Napier graduates ‘Stand out from the Crowd’ and make a real difference that impact on people’s lives in the numerous communities that the university serves. The university offer many opportunities for students, (both as part of their studies and outside them) for developing the attributes, skills, qualities and characteristics set out in Edinburgh Napier’s unique Graduate Attributes Model. This is why Edinburgh Napier in a recent league table by The Telegraph was listed as one of the top 10 universities in the UK for graduate employability.

The university is delighted to partner with the Governance Forum and with Napier students who have established a Young Trustee network, ‘Young Trustee’s in Scotland’. Not only will this course be of value to Napier students, but to commercial partners wishing to provide a real board experience for Senior Managers and Executives in the charity and voluntary sector. The Edinburgh Institute (EI) is dedicated to improving leadership and management through practice-based learning.
