Global Students' Society
What is the Global Students' Society?
The Global Students' Society (GSS) is run for students by students. It is the largest society at the University of Northampton Students' Union with over 120 members of more than 15 nationalities, and welcoming almost 200 students to our activities!
Our aim is to provide a platform whereby students have the opportunity to meet new friends from around the world and make the most out of their time at the University of Northampton. We organise different cultural and social events. Some of the activities we held in the last academic year were:
- Diwali Celebration

- Christmas Dinner
- British New Year Party
- Chinese New Year Gala
- Holi - Colour Festival
