Napier is great, but Sighthill needs more table space/staggered lunchtimes, and the WiFi is a bit rubbish. Vet nurses have very good employability rates though, and I do enjoy my classes. V good uni, but you will be mocked mercilessly by the snobs from UoE and Heriott-Watt.

There's lots to do in all Napier campuses and lots of places to concentrate on studying.

Enrolled on an MA design course with a focus in Motion Graphics. The course was hardly orientated around Motion Graphics with pointless and non-beneficial modules which had barely any relation to the name of the course. One module, in particular, that was an option was purposely made to feel unappealing by the tutor who said: "you will struggle if you take this module". The organisation from tutors was very poor and the structure of the course felt all over the place. As for the university itself, it feels more like a college, not a very appealing campus (Merchiston). Save your money and learn elsewhere, I feel bad for anyone starting this year.

Im at the sighthill campus doing nursing. Placement experiences are great. Lectures (if they are organised well) tend to be very imformative and relevant. Lectures can be a bit all over the place and can sometimes not understand what you’re asking. Alot of home working.

Very disappointing overall. The university staff weren’t particularly friendly with my head lecturer being an egotistical bully who singled me out on multiple occasions. While the facilities and resources were impressive, everything was heavily restricted, being very look but don’t touch. Ended up leaving after the one year. Just wasn’t worth it.

The gym and library are great, there are not many societies but the student union is based at one of the best pubs in Edinburgh

Really good. Lots of help. Union is cheap but a bit of a trek from majority of accommodation.

Fantastic modern learning facility, routine improvements to campus life and looking out for the environment. A university that also has the second highest employment/further education rates in Scotland.

Not only is the university good on an academic level but also has a hugh employment rate. They push you to go out in the real world and gain experience with companies in order to prepare you for when you graduate. The clubs and societies are run so well and you really feel like you're part of a community. The NSA always organise great events and activities throughout the year, especially at freshers week! Highly recommend going to this university.

teaching staff are mainly horrendously bad and facilities are pretty appalling, but it's probably not too bad if you're Scottish and get it all for free, think twice if you're a fee payer though!

Campus's are nice and in good locations, except for Sighthill campus which is a bit out of the way to get to. Decent clubs and societies however there could be more to cater for more people. Haven't had any issues with wifi so far with it being decent in both halls and within the campuses, however in halls it can be very temperamental.
