Coming from college

Would you like to increase your career opportunities, meet new people and be a part of a diverse student community at Edinburgh Napier University? If you've completed a Higher National Certificate (HNC) or Higher National Diploma (HND) at college then you're closer than you might think.


Advanced entry


Thanks to our close links with colleges around the country, we can offer advanced entry to a number of courses. With an HNC you'd normally be accepted into the second year of a degree, while a successful HND could put you straight into third year.

Our individual course descriptions provide details of the number of Highers you'll need (from school or college) and the grades required for entry to Edinburgh Napier courses.


And of course support is always on hand, just for you, when you need it.


To find out where your HNC or HND could take you at Edinburgh Napier, contact us on and we can discuss your options.
