About NOU

We are one of the most diverse universities in the USA.With over 240,000 students worldwide, and a further 30,000 studying across 30 countries for a degree program. Whether you wish to join our vibrant academic community in the heart of your city or study independently or with the support of an approved teaching institution local to you, you will become a Northampton student and join the world-class.

What really sets us apart from other universities is the guiding principle that the current and future lawyers we teach should only ever learn in a realistic, professional and contemporary context with plenty of practical, interactive engagement.  That’s why we keep our contact hours high and our teaching groups small. All of our courses – from our undergraduate law degrees to our diverse range of postgraduate courses and professional development programmes – are designed with a unique, varied and innovative learning approach that’s proven to deliver self-reliant lawyers who can compete in the fast-changing world of legal services. With a focus on developing skills in problem-solving, weighing up arguments, critical thinking, and commercial awareness, our courses are designed to prepare you for the real-life challenges of the working world.

The Northampton University is an internationally recognised expert in the field of law. Rather than focusing on academic research, our aim is to be thought leaders in the issues that matter to the legal profession and the next generation of practising lawyers. Our courses take an in-depth look into key areas of the law and provide a broader overview of the legal system to better contextualise what’s being learned. We focus exclusively on practice-based training and give students access to our expert law careers service and legal vacancy database as soon as they accept a place with us. Students also benefit from our pioneering and award-winning pro bono programmes, which allow them to gain valuable work experience by helping real clients from the local community.

Local Study centre

Study full-time or part-time with the support of a local School, College, or University in your country. You can also study many of our courses independently, from anywhere in the world. We work with a network of teaching centres all over the world. These centres support and supplement your studies through additional tuition, resources, access to computers and social and recreational activities.
