International students

​​​​​​​​​​​​Each year the University welcomes more than 1,000 international students from more than 100 countries. Students can expect to find high quality academic teachings, first class resour​ces and a friendly, supportive ​learning environment. All students benefit from the unique opportunity to develop international relationships and networks through learning alongside others from a wide range of countries and cultures.​

As an international student at the Uni​versity of Northampton you will gain a lot of experience that employers will value highly. T​he experience of living, studying and working in the UK, the opportunity to improve your English and communication skills and the chance to meet and interact with students from all over the world.

​For most of our intern​ational students, studying and living in the UK is a new experience. There is a dedicated team of staff to help you settle in as well as a great social programme to help you make the most of your time at the University. Students have the opportunity to be met at the airport by a University ​representative to be brought directly to the University and all students are invited to join our International Orientation Programme the week before their course starts. The programme provides sessions where you can get advice and guidance on daily life, for example opening a bank account or registering with a doctor, as well as a number of social activities to help you meet other students and get to know the area.

In addition to academic support, the University of Northampton provides a range of services to ensure international students are supported in all aspects of university life. The international student support service is here to support students throughout their studies. Each student is allocated a personal tutor who is concerned with both studies and wellbeing. International students also have access to free English language support throughout their studies, as well as visa and career guidance.
