Work and Employment After University

We’re really proud of the support we’re able to offer our students. We believe our students leave us ready to make their mark on the world.

Our courses and extracurricular support provide every student with the opportunity to build the skills and knowledge they need for the career they want.

Northampton Employment Promise*

The Northampton Employment Promise is our guarantee to you – If you complete your HND or achieve a 2:2 degree or above and complete either the Employability Plus Gold programme or achieve a Changemaker Gold Certificate during your time studying with us but still haven’t found full-time employment 12 months after graduating, we will secure a three – six month paid internship for you or support you into postgraduate study.

We created the Northampton Employment Promise because we want our students to feel confident that investing so much money and time committing to their degree, alongside one of the awards, is worth it. A combination of the knowledge gained from their degree plus skills and experience throughout the Employability or Changemaker award puts our students in a competitive position.

Career Support for Life

All of our students have lifelong access to our careers service, in case they ever need CV or interview support.

University of Northampton Internship

Work for the University as a Student Ambassador and in addition to being paid, our students also earn credit towards our employability award and develop skills and opportunities.
