Hello different. The University of Northampton celebrates the path less trodden. The different thinkers. The different doers. Those inspired to make a difference to their own lives and the world around them. Nobody changed the world by following the crowd. Northampton is one of the youngest universities in the UK but they’re already leading the way in social impact. Change is the most powerful force for good in the world. Without it, everything stays the same. Why do the same as everyone else when doing the opposite is when the exciting stuff happens? That’s why they were one of the UK’s first ‘Changemaker Campuses’, cementing their mission to help people make changes that will transform their lives and those lives of the communities around them.
