At Edinburgh Napier we nurture talent and create knowledge that shapes communities all around the world. Our innovative research provides solutions to society's challenges, our graduates leave ready for the workplace, and we have wide-ranging links with employers and business.

Our vision is to be an enterprising and innovative community renowned internationally, with an unrivalled student learning experience. Strategy 2020: Building Success demonstrates the excitement we have in our potential and the ambitions we have for ourselves and our students.
We want to be recognised as a University that acts with respect and integrity and creates an environment where everyone involved feels proud, confident, challenged and supported. Our values are reflected in all aspects of our work and our relationships with partners and stakeholders.

Now home to over 18,000 students from over 100 countries, we first welcomed 800 students as Napier Technical College in 1964. However our story goes back to the time of John Napier, the brilliant sixteenth century mathematician and philosopher from whom we take our name. The past five decades have seen us grow into a globally renowned institution, while retaining our focus on professional knowledge and personalised learning. The timeline below marks key moments in that history.
