Before you start as a student here, we need you to complete the online matriculation process. Matriculation is the formal process where you register as a student with Edinburgh Napier University.

You should log in and follow the series of simple and easy steps to complete the matriculation process and, at the end of the process, you’ll get a message that will tell you what you need to do during your first few days at University to complete your matriculation. Some students will need to attend our Immigration & Finance checks to confirm payment of their fees or to have their passport and visa checked by our International Support team.
You’ll also be told about when and where you can collect your Edinburgh Napier student ID card.
