Living in Edinburgh

Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is as much a modern and cosmopolitan city as it is a living reminder of its ancient roots, made famous through Scottish legend and literature. It is not only at the administrative, legislative, and financial hub of Scotland, but also serves as the country’s cultural center, and is at the cutting edge of medical research. As such, Edinburgh is teeming with internship opportunities for students.

Edinburgh is an energetic and youthful city due to its three universities and several colleges. Culture abounds – from that of important museums such as the National Museum of Scotland and the National Gallery to local culture such as the brewing and distilling traditions, and historic pubs and cuisine.

Classes
Students take two courses (modules) at Edinburgh Napier University and have the use of university facilities, including the library, student union, etc.
 

Accommodations

Students are housed in apartments centrally located in a splendid 18th century part of the city known as "Newtown". It is within very easy walking distance of Princes Street, the main shopping area of the city. Newtown is full of restaurants and bars that are very popular with the large student population and we have had excellent feed-back from students on recent programs.
 

Language

All courses and internships are in English.

International students applying for the London program who are not originally from a majority English speaking country must prove that they are competent in English at a Level B2 with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) in all 4 components (reading, writing, speaking and listening).  List of acceptable tests. *Please note that TOEFL tests will no longer be accepted.*
 
Students who are applying for an internship in a language other than their native language may be interviewed in that language to assess their communication skills and proficiency.
 

Visa

All accepted students are required to obtain a UK Tier 4 General Student Visa. Students must first have a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies number which Edinburgh Napier University will obtain for them, and this cannot be applied for until 90 days before the start of the program.

Other Requirements

EPA accepts applications from undergraduate students studying at universities and colleges in the United States and Canada with a 3.0 GPA. At this time we do not offer placements for graduate students or students who have recently graduated.
