About the institution

Edinburgh Napier University began in 1964 as the Napier Technical College, taking its name from mathematician and philosopher John Napier, the inventor of logarithms. The university has three campuses in the suburbs of Edinburgh: Craiglockhart, Merchiston and Sighthill. Each one houses different schools of study and is equipped with specialist facilities to cater to them. Sighthill, for example, houses the school of nursing, midwifery and social care and has life-like hospital wards on-site.
