The University of Northampton Changemaker Campus

Based in the heart of England and only a short journey from London, Birmingham, Oxford and Cambridge, the University of Northampton offers our students an outstanding academic experience. At the heart of all that we do and offer is our commitment to transforming lives and inspiring change. Driving this commitment to transforming and changing the world around us is the 2010-2105 ‘Raising the Bar’ institutional strategy to be Number 1 at social enterprise in the UK; offering our 14,000 students the opportunity to explore and experience social entrepreneurship in action. This is delivered by the Changemaker Campus team, coupled to a unique national enterprise start-up and growth infrastructure in Inspire2Enteprise. 14,000 students exploring and solving social problems is creating the UK’s largest social innovation funnel.
