Organized university and helpful staff at ENU

The level of education at Edinburgh Napier University was great. All of my teachers were really experienced. The tutorials were taken place in small groups so the teachers could talk to each student individually and everybody had the chance to ask questions.

As being part of the Engineering faculty, I am located at the Merchiston Campus quite close to the city centre. The facilities for students are very good as you have a huge computing centre and a big library, both new and modern and everybody always has access to a computer at University. Staff is very friendly and helpful. If you have problems with courseworks or preparation for exams, you can always contact your teachers. You have to be aware that as a postgraduate student you only have classes for max. three days a week with three modules each trimester. If you want to study here, think about if that’s enough to study for you as you have to pay tuition fees for the Master. For your CV and professional skills, studying in the UK always looks good and at university they train you very good for your future job. Besides that, Edinburgh is always a great choice for students. There are so many various possibilities to spend days and nights out and there is a huge range of student association offers. show less
