About the University of Northampton/Exemplas
University of Northampton
The University of Northampton is the only university in the UK that has gained the highly respected 'Changemaker Campus' status, awarded by Ashoka U – the international centre of excellence for social entrepreneurship.
The university prides itself on offering a very practical education. Its graduates leave with the real-life, hands-on skills and knowledge they need to contribute to and work effectively with a wide variety of local businesses.
Offering academic expertise in many key local sectors, the university engages with businesses in the logistics, food and drink, utilities and financial sectors, as well as professional development programmes. It also has world-renowned expertise in sustainable waste management systems.
In 2012, the university had the highest employability rate in England. And in June 2013, it rocketed into the Top 50 in the Guardian's university league table for 2014, leaping 39 places above last year’s ranking.
By working with local business authorities, the university has taken another valuable step towards supporting regional businesses and the economy as well as improving internship and career opportunities for their students.
