Edinburgh Napier named Higher Educational Institution of the Year

Edinburgh Napier University has been named the top higher education institution in Scotland, winning the Higher Educational Institution of the Year award at the 2024 Herald Higher Education Awards in Glasgow. This marks the first time ENU has claimed the top prize at these awards.

In addition, ENU secured two other awards: the Widening Access Award for the Hub for Success, and the Outstanding Contribution from a University Student award for Shalu Madan, and a commendation for the Research Project of the Year for the naloxone carriage project by police officers to address drug-related deaths in Scotland.

The Hub for Success, a project supporting care-experienced students, recently celebrated its fifth anniversary, while Shalu Madan was recognised for her dedication to cybersecurity and advocacy for diversity and inclusion in that industry.

These wins come after ENU's strong performance in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and the National Student Survey, reflecting the University's ongoing growth and development.

The Herald Higher Education Awards are a significant event in the Scottish education sector, celebrating excellence in teaching, student support, and innovative research.
