The University of Northampton is pleased to announce a global strategic alliance with Amity University in India which will enable more of its programmes to be offered internationally.
With over 100,000 students, Amity is a private university and has been named by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) as one of Asia’s top 300 universities. It engages in teaching/learning, research, vocational training and enterprise work and in addition runs many international schools. Its main campus is located in Noida but it has campuses and colleges worldwide.
The agreement means that University of Northampton programmes will now be offered in a variety of international locations, including Singapore, Mauritius, India and London in subject areas, such as business, computing and fashion. This also includes research collaborations in areas such as business, engineering and wastes management.
The partnership with Amity University was cemented earlier in 2014, with the opening of a new office located in the heart of Amity’s Delhi campus. The office serves as an information hub for students who would like to apply to complete a Master’s degree or, normally, the final year of their course at the University of Northampton.
Professor Nick Petford, Vice Chancellor at the University of Northampton, commented: “We are delighted to formally announce our global strategic alliance with Amity University to deliver our programmes in India, Singapore, Mauritius and London, with plans to expand to other key locations. I look forward to developing this partnership further and providing great opportunities for students of both countries.”
Dr Mairi Watson, Deputy Dean at Northampton Business School at the University of Northampton, commented: “The partnership with Amity represents the University of Northampton’s commitment to internationalisation and to achieving our ambitions of globally relevant research. We are very pleased to be working with an organisation with such a strong and growing reputation across the world.”
Dr Atul Chauhan, Chancellor at Amity University, while expressing his delight and appreciation for the global strategic alliance, commented: “Amity University, which is committed to propagation of doctrine of knowledge and best world class practices, is extremely pleased to form a global strategic alliance with one of the Top 50 universities in the UK. Our common vision provides a wonderful synergy that will surely offer students an enriching experience and exposure to beautifully complement and supplement their journey of enlightenment.”
