 Coming from College

Each year, around a thousand students come from college to study at Edinburgh Napier, entering into first, second, third and fourth year of degree courses.  

​We recognise that there may be unique challenges that can arise when entering university from college, especially if you are entering at an advanced level. 

To help you get the best possible start at university the Widening Participation team are here to help you through the transition from college to university. We provide support to students while they are still in college and continue to provide support once students start at Edinburgh Napier.​​​​​
