The University of Northampton is situated in the heart of England and offers various subjects at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The University is globally renowned in subject specialisms such as Wastes Management, Leather Technology and Fashion.
In 2012 we were recognised as England’s No 1 University for employability* and as part of the University’s new strategy, we aim to be the top university in the UK for social enterprise by 2015. Our social enterprise strategy is based on a desire to be distinctive, forward-thinking and responsible.
Our strategy is unique; we are the only university taking an institutional and holistic approach integrating social enterprise into our student offer, into teaching and learning and research, and working with local authorities, businesses and the wider community, to deliver improvements to Northamptonshire.
