Students chatting in seminar

​The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015 has today revealed the University of Northampton has risen three places to 56th place.

The league table is drawn up from criteria including student satisfaction, research quality, graduate prospects, entrance qualifications held by new students, degree results achieved, student/staff ratios, service and facilities spend, as well as university dropout rates.

Professor Nick Petford, Vice Chancellor at the University of Northampton commented: “I am pleased to announce that the University has risen to 56th place, three places above last year’s ranking.

This rise continues to demonstrate the University’s commitment to transforming lives and inspiring change. Our focus has been very much on the student experience, which has led to higher rates of student satisfaction, the continued employability of our graduates and the creation of high quality learning, teaching and social facilities for our students and staff. We are committed to maintaining and improving this position over the coming years.

Looking to the future, we have ambitious plans to continue developing our offering to students, staff and our local community through the development of a brand new campus in the heart of Northampton town. The new campus, located next to the River Nene, will be a state of the art campus which will set the tone for the future of the University as a leading Higher Education institution, not only in the UK, but internationally, really putting Northampton on the map.”

The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015 provides students and their parents with an invaluable first reference point on the path to finding a university place.
