      Everyday expenses

      With the amount of help and advice available to students at the uni it is hard to not manage your costs effectively. There is a wide range of shops to choose from for everyday living and the buses are discounted for students on uni routes. With no end of bars, clubs, restaurants and supermarkets there are endless opportunities for part time jobs for hard working students and as far as additional costs go?... check those out before you commit to any uni and you will still always find ones you didn't know about. The good thing, is that the University of Northampton know what additional costs are important and offer a range of bursaries and funds to help you stay on track in addition to providing subsidised costs for trips etc.

      There is lots of advice to be found in student services and peer groups if a student finds themselves in difficulty.

      I only use the student restaurant, but it's pretty good. They serve a range of food and most of it is well priced. There aren't many healthy options available, especially cheaply! The coffee stand is really good but quite expensive. Greggs is always popular.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
