International student support Student Services


Our mission is to help every student at the University of Northampton to have the best possible university experience. In addition to academic support, the University provides a range of personal support services to ensure that you are supported in all aspects of your university life.


Meet and Greet


The University offers a free ‘Meet and Greet’ service at London Heathrow Airport for International Students arriving in September and January. Students who sign up for this service will be met at the airport by a University representative and brought directly to the University by coach. This avoids the problems and expense of finding your own way to Northampton. Further details about this service will be sent to you with your offer.


Welcome Week


We recognise that many of our international students will be visiting the UK for the first time. To ensure that you settle in quickly and receive all the practical advice and guidance you need, you will be invited to our International Welcome Programme which takes place immediately prior to the start of your course. During this programme you will be given detailed information about issues such as opening a bank account, obtaining a part-time job, getting a National Insurance number, registering with a doctor, etc. We also organise a range of social activities during the week which will enable you to relax and to meet up with other international students.


Accommodation


The University has a range of on-campus accommodation available for students. International students are guaranteed on-campus accommodation provided they return the appropriate paperwork by the relevant deadline. Help can also be provided in finding private sector accommodation for those who wish to live off campus.


Student Health Service


All international students who are studying with us for more than six months are entitled to free health care under the UK’s National Health Service. To assist you with any possible health-related problems, we have a Doctor’s surgery on Park Campus for all students living on campus or close to the University. You can make an appointment to either see a nurse or doctor and there is a number for emergencies which occur out of hours.


Visa Advice


If you are applying for a course as an international student, you may need to apply for a visa before coming here. This will depend on your nationality and the type of course you choose to come and study.


Career Guidance


We are aware that you have made a substantial investment in your education in order to enhance your career prospects. Our Careers Guidance team will provide advice and support throughout your time with us in order to help you achieve your career goals. As well as assisting you to identify and develop the skills needed to promote yourself effectively in the job market, they will also help you to hone your career management skills in order to plan ahead for the future.


Chaplaincy/ Religious Provision


The University has a Multi-Faith Chaplaincy which serves the whole University community. The chaplains are drawn from a number of denominations and faiths and have contact with other faith communities throughout the area. A prayer room is also provided for Muslim students.
