Napier first welcomed 800 students as Napier Technical College in 1964. However, our story goes back to the time of John Napier, the brilliant 16th-century mathematician and philosopher from whom we take our name. In 1992 Napier was officially inaugurated as a university. Lord James Douglas Hamilton and Principal William Turmeau unveiled the new University sign at Merchiston. In 2009 it was renamed as Edinburgh Napier University.

Napier has three campuses in Edinburgh offering advanced facilities for learning, teaching and research. Based in an iconic, prosperous city and a stunning, ambitious forward-thinking country, Edinburgh Napier is a great place to live, work and study.


Vibrant, cosmopolitan and consistently voted one of the best cities in the world, Edinburgh is the perfect place to experience student life or build your career. It's big enough to have everything you need, yet small enough to feel like home. No matter where you're from, the Festival City is ready to welcome you.

The city is bursting with cafes, pubs and clubs. There are museums and art galleries across the city, live music venues, hidden markets and more history than you can possibly imagine.

Volcanic foundations frame medieval architecture, while mountains, valleys, lochs and jagged coastline envelop the city. The best part is how easy it is to get both around and out of the city into the countryside. Half an hour on the bus will see you on the edge of the North Sea, or up a craggy hill in the Pentlands.
