Here at Northampton, our mission is to transform lives and inspire change. We aim to ensure your time at university is fulfilling, satisfying and enjoyable. We have exciting, industry-relevant courses, excellent and passionate lecturers, and know that looking for ways to make a positive difference will change the future.
We have a unique commitment to social innovation; this means our staff and our students work hard to have a positive effect on the world. We believe that everybody has the power to make a positive impact on society, but what really matters to us is making sure our students and graduates have the opportunity to make their mark in the world too. That’s why we were the first university in the UK to be named as a ‘Changemaker Campus.’
We want to break the mould of what Higher Education can be, and that’s why we’ve decided to build a brand new campus from the ground up. Join us and you will be in an exclusive number as one of the first students through the doors of Waterside Campus when it opens in September 2018.
The University of Northampton has been awarded Gold in the Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), placing us in an elite group of only 42 higher education institutions in the UK to have been given the highest possible rating. By studying at Northampton, you will be choosing one of the best teaching universities in the UK.
We make your learning meaningful, combining traditional classroom teaching with online learning and group work. This combination of learning is much closer to the ‘real world’ of work beyond graduation. Our industry partnerships and dedication to employability will help you secure the graduate role you deserve. In short, we care about your future.
