The university’s sports centre features Olympic weightlifting platforms while they have close ties with the Olympic-sized Royal Commonwealth Pool.

Edinburgh Napier University Water Polo Scholarships

There are Edinburgh Napier University Water Polo Scholarships available through a partnership between Team Napier and the university.

Elite athlete funding varies from training camps to youth and senior level representation and is intended to support students who, due to the cost of participating in the training and competition, would not otherwise be able to take part.

Previously athletes have been involved in events such as the 4 Nations, World Games and the Commonwealth Games.

Sports Grants are also available to students studying Sports Science Degrees and awarded by the External Relations & Communications department.

They operate on a similar basis to the Student Grant Initiative, with a maximum of £1,000 awardable per applicant.

Sports Facilities at Edinburgh Napier University

The main base for students with Edinburgh Napier University Water Polo Scholarships will be the sports facilities at the [EN]GAGE gym and sports hall on the Sighthill campus.

The 200m² fitness suite contains equipment ranging from Life Fitness treadmills to Olympic weightlifting platforms.

While there is no pool on campus, Edinburgh City Council run a number of swimming facilities including the 50m Olympic-sized Royal Commonwealth Pool.
