SDG10: Reduced Inequalities

The University of Northampton is absolutely committed to reducing inequalities and ensuring no one is left behind. Many of our commitments to our students are detailed in our Access and Participation Plan (APP). This sets out how we will sustain or improve access, student success and progression among people from under-represented and disadvantaged groups.

Additionally, the University undertakes research into inequality and engages with partners to attempt to reduce inequalities in the wider society.

Sustainable Development Goal 10 - Reduced Equalities


Our student body and inequality

Northampton is one of the most diverse Universities in the UK. Many of our students are non-traditional and many (46%) are first generation students (the first in their family to start a degree).  We actively monitor our student intake and in particular we continue to target white working-class males from disadvantaged backgrounds (the most underrepresented group in higher education in the UK).

A high proportion of our international students are from developing countries (13% of all of our students are from developing countries). We offer a range of bursaries, scholarships and awards to support these students as our aim is prepare graduates who are Changemakers dedicated to creating social impact throughout their lives.
