Getting Started


We have been welcoming international and EU students for many years and are delighted that you have chosen to study with us. Northampton is a great place to live and study and we want to help you settle into your new home as soon as possible. Studying abroad is an exciting but challenging time and there have been more challenges than ever over the past few years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Please be assured that the University of Northampton is still committed to ensuring that you enjoy your studies and make the most of your time with us.

The International Student Support Services team have put these Getting Started pages together with the needs of International and EU students in mind. We hope they will answer any questions you may have before you arrive and help prepare you for your studies in the UK. If you have any further questions, please do get in touch with us. Our details can be found on the Contact Details webpage. We wish you a safe journey and we look forward to welcoming you to the University of Northampton very soon.
