Located in an ancient market town steeped in social, political and industrial history of the nation, the University of Northampton is actually one of the UK’s youngest universities.
Since its establishment, it’s been rapidly building a reputation for its innovative teaching and learning style that has ‘de-formalised’ and personalised the higher education experience for its students. So much so, that in the UK government’s recent Teaching Excellence Framework exercise, the only official ranking of UK universities, the University of Northampton received the highest possible award, TEF Gold.
Having harnessed novel technologies that injects interest and introduces flexibility into the theoretical practices of learning, students are able to study and work wherever they want, whenever they want, with whoever they want. This gives students a deeper, more meaningful relationship with lecturers and professors, more time to explore, challenge and question, whilst leaving space and time for individual support, advice and guidance.
With that, the University of Northampton is proud to offer a diverse range of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs across four faculties: Faculty of Business and Law, Faculty of Arts, Science and Technology, Faculty of Health and Society, and Faculty of Education and Humanities.
To facilitate the university’s new style of learning, it has a brand new, purpose-built, high-tech campus, offering the best of both worlds. The Waterside campus is self-contained with everything students need by way of modern, spacious teaching and learning facilities, libraries, shops, food and drinks outlets, accommodation and recreational facilities all on a compact single campus.
The Creative Hub brings together creative and science disciplines in a flexible learning space on the banks of the River Nene, and is home to the university’s creative, workshop and laboratory specialist teaching spaces.
The Learning Hub houses 24/7 library facilities, superb social, eating and learning spaces and is designed to allow students and staff from different disciplines to work together and take learning out of the traditional classroom environment.
The Engine Shed is a superbly and sympathetically restored railway engine maintenance workshop, that has become the home of the Students’ Union. The Students’ Union continues to offer all sports and societies.
