University of Northampton


The University of Northampton recently relocated to its £330 million, brand new purpose-built Waterside Campus situated in central Northampton. One of the youngest universities in the UK, it has been recognised with a number of awards, including Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework.

Selecting the right postgraduate course is a key decision to make, whether you would like to enhance your career prospects through our unique MBA, require further qualifications for your chosen career, such as one of our popular PGCE courses, or would simply like to continue to study a subject you love like our Fine Art MA, the University offers a range of postgraduate degrees.


All courses are also designed to help students with their future career by teaching practical, industry-relevant skills. Students will also benefit from the University’s links to industry and teaching from lecturers who are experts in their field.

Our teaching ethos aims to put students first, with a specific focus on seminars or tutorials allowing a closer interaction between students and staff. This blended approach puts students at the centre of their learning, giving them more opportunities to ask questions and delve deeper into their chosen subject.
