Making your application

To apply for a full-time undergraduate course you can now only apply to UCAS online at ucas.com. This includes Foundation Degrees, BA and BSc degrees, DipHE courses and some Diplomas, HND courses and the Foundation Study Framework.

If you require further information or advice please contact UCAS customer service on: 0371 468 0468 or visit the website at ucas.com. The UCAS institution code for the University of Northampton is N38 and code name is NTON – you will need this when completing your application.

Is there a deadline for applications?

For 2019 entry, you can submit your application to UCAS from September 2018. Although the closing date was 15 January 2019, we acknowledge that some applicants may have found this deadline difficult to meet - as the University of Northampton reviews all applications on merit, we encourage you to still apply, as applications are accepted throughout the remainder of the applications year.

For 2020 entry, you can submit your application to UCAS from September 2019. The closing date is 15 January 2020, but you are advised to apply as early as possible.

UCAS will process your application and send copies to the institutions you have listed. Once we have received your application from UCAS, we will normally provide you with a decision within 14 days. If you have applied for a course that requires an interview, audition, portfolio submission or Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, our response will take slighter longer but we will write to you explaining the next stage in the application process.

If you would like to apply for postgraduate study, please apply directly to the University: how-to-apply-for-postgraduate-study/. If you are an international student, please see our information about applications for international students.
