Come to the University of Northampton and you will see that we do things a bit
We are one of the youngest universities in the UK but we are already leading
the way in adding value to society, which we call social impact. We have won
multiple awards for our work in this area, among others, but what matters the
most to us is ensuring that our students and graduates have the opportunity to
make their mark on the world too. That's why we were the first university in
the UK to be named as a Changemaker Campus in 2012.
We want to break the mould of what Higher Education can be. This has led us to
build a whole new University from the ground up that is designed to reflect
the way that students actually learn rather than the way they are expected to
learn. Waterside Campus opened in September 2018.
Our commitment to transforming lives and inspiring change is at the heart of
all that we do.
