Hi, I’m Shuna Marr and I am and Lecturer and the Articulation Support Tutor for the Business School. I joined Edinburgh Napier University in March 2008.
For the first eight years I was a full-time lecturer and programme leader in Tourism, but I am currently working in a seconded post as Articulation Support Tutor for the Business School. With the help of colleagues, my role has been to put together a programme of support to help students make a successful transition from college to 2nd, 3rd or 4th year in university. That includes students who will make the transition from EIC to the main university.
The best thing about working at Edinburgh Napier is my colleagues. There is a real feeling of camaraderie that keeps us going. And the students, who make our job worthwhile.
Edinburgh is a very cosmopolitan city with lots to see and do all year round. My advice to new students would be that any new venture always seems scary because of fear of the unknown. But feel the fear and do it anyway.
