10 Gifs That Accurately Describe Being A Student At Edinburgh Napier University

Edinburgh Napier University is a school that has a lot of different experiences to offer its students. Here are some GIFs that describe them.

Edinburgh Napier University is a place where students discover who they are and who they want to be. It is a place where horizons are widened and knowledge is shared. It is a place where the canteen cooks think it’s ok to make yesterday’s vegetable curry into a soup. A place where cigarette buds start fires in the bins, but no one attempts to put them out. Where football strips are a fashion staple, and where full classes of students turn up to lectures, but their lecturers do not.

Here’s 10 gifs that accurately describe being a student on the Merchiston campus of Edinburgh Napier University (that’s the creative one). Fasten your seatbelts folks, we’re in for a bumpy ride.

Tesco £3 Meal Deals have ruined your bank account

Tesco meal deals are not only God’s gift to the average skint student, they are part of the Merchiston campus culture. Every day is started right, with a Tesco Meal Deal.

These £3 deals both make and break friendships – what sort of person buys the ‘Just Ham’ or ‘Just Cheese’ sandwiches? Who even picks up the pickled online Monster Munch? And don’t get started on the people who choose ‘Baby Carrots’, over a Mars Bar. Amateurs.

You dress up to go to the Kilby just in case you find the man of your dreams

Have you seen the cute boy sat in cluster 7B, row 3, at the computer 2 seats from the left? Well, he doesn’t know me, but we’re getting married once I’ve finished my dissertation.

…Or you see all the people you’ve been trying to avoid for the last 3 years

“Oh my god, hey! It’s been so long!” You see a meal deal in their hands. It’s an ‘Egg Mayo and Cress’ sandwich, with a packet of ‘thinly sliced apples’. Now you remember why you’re not pals anymore…

There are too many pubs nearby – no wonder group work always ends in booze

We’ve made 350 words. Montpellier’s Bar is just down the street. They do nice cocktails… shall we?

Dreams were made the day the Starbucks opened on campus

But, if you went to the downstairs canteen, they had a Do-It-Yourself coffee machine. Extra shot? No problem! Pay the price for a single? Yes, I did! Feeling guilty about it? Not one bit. Starbucks can keep their caramel, soy, spiced pumpkin lattes, because Napier students know how to work the system to get the ultimate caffeine buzz.

Traditional unis think we’re phonies

Just because we don’t have more than 15 hours of lecture time a week doesn’t mean we’re not full time students. A lot of us don’t have exams, but that doesn’t make the courses less difficult. Besides, Edinburgh University offers a PhD about the history of ghosts and ghouls – apparently that’s known as ‘Parapsychology’. Now if that’s not a joke…

There’s reading material in all the toilets

No, not books or magazines to enrich your knowledge. Defaced signs on the walls provide hours of entertainment – “Please hold down the flush until all debris ‘jobbies’ is removed. Thank you.” So mature.
