FBL is working to build on the University of Northampton’s distinctive values around social impact and the location of its campus in the heart of Northampton by encouraging world quality research in areas that will have a strong local impact. As part of this initiative, the Faculty is delighted to announce a number of Graduate Teaching Assistant posts. These posts will add to the Faculty’s growing Postgraduate Research Student community, comprising both PhDs and DBAs whilst supporting the development of early career academics.
The University of Northampton is committed to research that not only generates new knowledge but is also designed to help improve people’s lives and the environment. This social impact philosophy was recognised in 2013 when we were the first university in the UK to achieve AshokaU Changemaker Campus status. The University also has a strong reputation for supporting our doctoral students which was recognised in positive feedback in the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES, 2022) that saw the University ranked 3rd for progression and 7th for resources. We were ranked 4th for research culture in 2022 and 6th for supervision.
Come to the University of Northampton and you will see that we do things a bit differently.
We are one of the youngest universities in the UK but we are already leading the way in adding value to society, which we call social impact. We have won multiple awards for our work in this area, among others, but what matters the most to us is ensuring that our students and graduates have the opportunity to make their mark on the world too. That’s why we were the first university in the UK to be named as a Changemaker Campus in 2012.
We want to break the mould of what Higher Education can be. This has led us to build a whole new University from the ground up that is designed to reflect the way that students actually learn rather than the way they are expected to learn. Waterside Campus opened in September 2018.
Our commitment to transforming lives and inspiring change is at the heart of all that we do.
