School Description

Edinburgh Napier University’s history goes as far back as the early sixteenth century, to the time of John Napier, the brilliant sixteenth century mathematician and philosopher, from who the University gets its name. John Napier was born in the tower house of Merchiston Castle in 1550; in 1958 the medieval castle was converted into a college and named after its famed inhabitant. Between 1964 to 1992 the University saw several developments: the Napier Technical College was established in 1964; renamed Napier College of Science & Technology in 1967; merged with Edinburgh College of Commerce in 1974 and named Napier College of Commerce and Technology; in 1986 Napier acquired the former St. Andrew’s College of Education at Craiglockhart and the Craiglockhart campus was officially opened in 1987.

Napier is officially inaugurated as a University in 1992 and in the years that followed it continued to grow. In 2009, the University is renamed Edinburgh Napier University and in 2011 The University opened its new Sighthill campus. Napier is now home to over 18,000 students from over 100 countries.
