Choosing the right university for you isn’t just an academic decision. It’s also a very personal one.

The best way to find out if a university is the right one for you is to visit it. You can be confident that you’ll find out everything you need to know about studying at the University of Northampton at one of our Open Days.

Our friendly and helpful staff will be around to guide you through the day, where you have the opportunity to discuss your chosen course with our knowledgeable and enthusiastic academic staff, visit our Halls of Residence, take a campus tour and much more.

Tutors and school groups are also welcome to attend our Open Days. For postgraduate, CPD and research opportunities, please contact or call 0300 3032772 to discuss further.


If you have already applied to the University and would like to visit us, please visit our Discovery Day pages.
