The University of Northampton is pleased to announce that it has opened an office at Amity University in Noida, India.
With over 100,000 students, Amity is a private university and has recently 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 additional runs many international schools. The new office will serve 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.
Dr Ian Brooks, Executive Dean of Northampton Business School, visited Amity University in September to meet Vice Chancellor, Dr Gurinder Singh and Puneet Malhotra, who will manage the new office and who will act as the vital link between both universities.
Dr Ian Brooks commented: “I was delighted to open the University’s latest overseas office last week which is located in the heart of the huge and impressive Amity University Delhi campus. Amity is a large and very ambitious private university with global operations. We are proud partners delivering programmes in India, Singapore, Mauritius and London, with plans to expand to other key locations. The office will facilitate our Indian based representative to progress students to the University of Northampton for study and to support UK students who may wish to visit Amity in Noida, Delhi.”
Dr Gurinder Singh also paid a visit to the University of Northampton, where he was able to meet members of the senior management team and have a tour of both campuses.
