The University of Northampton

The University of Northampton is unique: at the heart of everything we do is our commitment to transforming lives and inspiring change. We are dedicated to delivering outstanding life-changing opportunities in education, offering our students an excellent degree and the practical skills required to make a real difference to society.

The University of Northampton was designated an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus in 2013, receiving international recognition for our commitment to social innovation and entrepreneurship. We are the first University in the UK to be awarded this honour, and one of only 25 in the world. Our dedication to social enterprise will help make a better future for everyone.

We are a Top 50 University (Guardian University Guide 2015), which is testament to the dedication and professionalism of our staff. We are proud of our ground-breaking new areas of study and our growing reputation for research excellence. Our staff and students have access to the state-of-the-art facilities and technology, extensive libraries and modern well-equipped facilities. We are investing in our town with the creation of a new University campus in the heart of Northamptonshire’s Waterside Enterprise Zone, which we anticipate opening in Autumn 2018.

Job opportunities for our graduates are excellent; 96%* of our students are in employment or further study 6 months after completing their course. Our undergraduate programmes have been developed in consultation with businesses to meet the needs of industry, and students have the option to undertake work placements and live projects. Opportunities for our staff are equally abundant.

We look forward to receiving your application.
