University of Northampton, England

Northampton

Come to the University of Northampton and you will see that the University does things a bit differently.

As one of the few universities to be ranked Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the University knows that sharing knowledge, supporting creativity and striving to make a positive difference will change the future. What motivates the University is the drive to help people make the changes that will transform their lives – people like you.

The University of Northampton is one of the youngest universities in the UK but it is already leading the way in adding value to society, which it calls social impact. It has won multiple awards for its work in this area, among others, but what matters the most to the University is ensuring that its students and graduates have the opportunity to make their mark on the world too. That’s why the University was the first university in the UK to be named as a Changemaker Campus in 2012.

The University wants to break the mould of what Higher Education can be. This has led it to build a whole new University from the ground up that is designed to reflect the way that you actually learn rather than the way you are expected to learn. Join the University and you will be one of the first students through the doors of its Waterside Campus.

Perhaps you want to study for a degree to kick-start your career or take it to the next level? Maybe you’re passionate about a subject that has grabbed your interest and want to learn every detail you can? Maybe you want to change the world for the better? The University of Northampton’s commitment to transforming lives and inspiring change is at the heart of all that it does. The University of Northampton wants to ensure that your experience studying at the University enables you to transform your life and those of others too, no matter how great or small this may be.

  • “I didn’t expect MABECS to do this much for me. My consultant, Ms. Maha was very, very helpful with my personal statement and a lot of things. When I contacted MABECS, I didn’t know it was free of charge, because I would have paid for it if I needed to!”
