The University of Northampton has over 40 Erasmus agreements with partners throughout Europe. If you are studying with one of our partner institutions it may be possible for you to study at the University of Northampton, gaining credits which count towards your degree.
Students who wish to apply for the Erasmus programme at Northampton should check with the European or International Office at their university to make sure that an Erasmus inter-institutional agreement is in place within their subject area. Students are usually nominated by their home institution and applications processed through the home university's European or International Office.
Courses of study at Northampton are organised under the University Modular Framework (UMF) with programmes of study divided into separate units of study called modules. Modules are credit-rated according to the Credit Accumulation and Transfer System (CATS) where a full year of study would equate to 120 CATS points (60 ECTS). Details of all modules are available.
Our Erasmus academic co-ordinators will guide you in your choice of programme to ensure that you can study the right subject areas with the correct number of credits. CAF modules usually last for a whole academic year but students who choose to study for a shorter period of time will be accredited with the appropriate number of credits. All courses are taught in English, and our English Language requirement is IELTS 6.0 or equivalent for Undergraduate study and IELTS 6.5 or equivalent for Postgraduate study. Mobility periods of 1 trimester or 1 academic year are offered and there are opportunities for Erasmus placements on some courses.
The University of Northampton is a great place for an Erasmus study or work placement. To find out more information on mobility opportunities, contact the University's Erasmus & Mobility Co-ordinator Ann Pillans.
