Alumni postgraduate study

If you’re a current student at the University of Northampton, now is a good time to be thinking about your future.

Postgraduate study can open up a whole new world of opportunity. Expanding your basic skills, enhancing your knowledge and greatly improving your career prospects.

Postgraduate courses

We offer both full-time and part-time courses, with some options for distance learning. If you’re studying full-time, your course will usually be shorter than an undergraduate course. On average, these take a year to complete. With Distance Learning courses, the course duration might be slightly longer.

Our most popular masters courses in 2020 were; business, HR and finance, education, health and legal, social and welfare. However, with a wide variety of courses available, you are sure to find the one for you.


Get a 20% graduate discount

Postgraduate study may be more affordable than you first thought. Graduates from eligible courses get a 20% graduate discount on PG courses.

Additionally, there is now finance available from Student Finance UK – the provider of the undergraduate student loan.

The Master’s Loan lends up to £11,570 for students in all subject areas staring a masters after 2021, if you are under 60 and a UK or EU national living in England. Unlike the undergraduate loan, the Masters Loan is paid directly to you – so keeping an eye on course prices is a sensible way to ensure you have extra funds to support your studies.
