International Student Study Perks
University of Northampton International Students’ Benefits
Attractive International Scholarships*
Research conducted by the University** shows that our International Scholarship schemes are better than 75% of our key competitor universities because they are unlimited in number, are available at Undergraduate and Postgraduate level, are awarded automatically if you get the grades and apply to all 3 years of an Undergraduate course
Wide choice of accommodation
Research** shows that our accommodation is a more attractive proposition than 70% of our key competitor universities because, overall, it is more affordable, offers a wider choice of on-campus, off-campus and town centre options and offers a higher standard of living in terms of age of the buildings, ensuite facilities, shared social areas and fully-equipped kitchens.
Study trips free of charge
We have made study trips and field trips an integral part of many of our courses. The benefits they bring in terms of wider-thinking, new ways of working, additional skills and knowledge all add to your future employability. In fact, we think they are so important that we will pay all travel and accommodation costs for all trips that are a compulsory part your course.
Online study subscriptions***
Free access to Office365 including Word, PowerPoint and Excel to give you the basic tools you need. Plus free access to thousands of online courses on LinkedIn Learning, so you can add new skills with the help of industry experts.
Stay Engaged, Fit and Active at a lower cost
Moving to a new country can be daunting at the best of times, and one way to build new friendships and support networks is to engage with the University’s social life. Because we realise how important it is for your wellbeing, our Students’ Union have made many sports and societies completely free – including any kit you may need. Full information on free sports and societies can be found on the Students’ Union website.
If you are a keen swimmer, like working out or love exercise classes, we have arranged a discount scheme with Trilogy Leisure, offering three levels of membership to match individual activity preferences.
