   Edinburgh Napier Universityis a UK government-recognised university or college which currently gives degree awards.

This institution is one of 43 that HEDD will now verify on behalf of, in order to provide you with the same efficient service that you receive from our 27 partner institutions. This will enable you to manage more of your candidate verifications in one place.

The process for obtaining verification from these institutions will not differ from the current process we have with our exclusive partner universities. You will still be expected to provide all of the details from the candidate’s degree certificate and to provide a PDF scan of their signed and dated consent.

We do not have an exclusive contract with this institution so you still have the option to contact them using the contact details displayed on this page.
