University Summary

University is a time for personal growth, for developing your passion and making plans for your future. It’s a time for self-discovery, for working hard and reconsidering what you think you know. It’s a time for change.

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 a brand new campus opening this September (2018). In short, we care about making sure you have all the support you need on this important stage of your life.

Our face-to face teaching is enhanced by the latest developments in technology to give our students flexibility in the way they learn. In addition, we have a unique commitment to social impact – which means we support our staff and our students to have a positive impact on the world. We believe that everybody has the power to make a positive impact on society – small changes that add up to make the world a better place.
