We believe that at the University of Northampton, we offer a unique combination of factors that make us a choice that is hard to beat when it comes to deciding where to study for your UK degree.

To ensure that applicants have enough time to complete all necessary steps to join us in September, applications to all programmes starting in September 2021 are now closed for international students. A number of our most popular courses are also available to start in January and May, most with placement option available.

There is also a limited number of courses where students can start online in September and join us later in the year.

Our employability support includes a wide range of programmes with free study trips and work placement options.

We offer great value for money as a University, by charging the same fee, irrespective of subject*; an attractive International Scholarship scheme and affordable accommodation, and Northampton itself offers outstanding value despite being just one hour from London.

There are so many reasons to choose UON for your studies. Take a more detailed look at our range of benefits for international students.
