MSc Ecotourism at Napier University, Edinburgh

Advantagesinteresting subject

Disadvantagesunfocused, no job options in ecotourism

"...one-year taught MSc Ecotourism at Napier University in Edinburgh and to sum it up, for me the course was overall interesting, but it comes with several caveats - the main one is that the course contents does not consistently focus on ecotourism and also the course management and coordination is often just plain awful. Moreover, good jobs are very, very scarce in this field. Despite it being a very interesting subject, considering that job options ..." Read review

Napier: the Common Sense Approach

AdvantagesFriendly. Snuggled into the heart of Edinburgh.

DisadvantagesPoor Rep.

"...your artistic abilities then, certainly, Napier is probably not the University for you. Don’t get me wrong, Napier is the most friendly University I have ever been to (and I’ve been to a few) and a pleasant atmosphere is important when you are a young student looking to get settled in. Whether you are an artist or a scientist you will benefit from the non-cliquey nature of Napier students. The title of this opinion is ‘Common Sense Approach’ ..." Read review

4 Years at Napier

AdvantagesSituated close to Edinburgh center.

DisadvantagesSeems to have a poor image.

napier is a good modern university

Advantagesemployability after your degree, the location, the facilities, student accommodation location, the friendly staff,

Disadvantageslack of clubs other than sport, not a well known uni,

"I am currently a Napier student, i'm in my 2nd year of my honours degree. I am doing festival and events managment. I'm based at Craiglockhart campus. It is a really good business school. It is a good size of building so it is easy to find the room you are meant to be in. I have friends from loads of different countries. The tutors are very friendly and are easy to contact if you need any help. Good facilities including a brand new gym. The ..." Read review

Abysmal management

AdvantagesIn Edinburgh

DisadvantagesArrogant & disfunctional management

"Right - I'm a Napier graduate and have done some work for them too so maybe have an insight that many won't. Napier tries to do many things well, and succeeds very little. The courses themselves are - on the whole - not too bad but with the Uni using SO many part time lecturers (and providing so few facilities for these staff) it's difficult to keep consistency of quality. Craighouse is an excellent cmapus, both Craiglockhart and Merchiston have ..." Read review
