About Us

The University of Northampton offers its students an outstanding and innovative academic experience which is not only facilitated by excellence in tuition, research and cutting-edge facilities, but also reflected in its student satisfaction rating of 89% in the 2014 National Student Survey. Our unique combination of academic excellence, modern facilities and campus life create an outstanding learning environment in which they can excel.

    International community

Each year, the University of Northampton is proud to host more than 1,000 international students from over 100 different countries. All students are supported by our high quality of academic teaching, modern resources and welcoming learning environment, and are encouraged to develop a broad network of international relationships by studying alongside peers from all over the world.

As we realise that, for most of our international students, both living and studying in the UK is a new experience, we ensure that a dedicated team of staff are available to provide students with any assistance necessary as they acclimatise to both the university and the country.

    League Table success

The University of Northampton has demonstrated its exceptional quality in recent league tables. The highest climbing institution in both the 2014 Guardian League Table and the 2014 Complete University Guide, we have been confirmed as Top 30 in the UK for student satisfaction (National Student Survey 2014).
