The University of Northampton offers a wide range of Health and Social Care programmes from Undergraduate degrees to Postgraduate and Research degrees, as well as short courses for professional development.​​ Those wishing to work as a nurse must have a degree in one of the four nursing specialisms: adult, children, mental health, or learning disability. The University offers degrees in each of the four specialisms. You can also study Social Work, Health Studies, Occupational Therapy, Podiatry Paramedic Science, Human Biology and many other programmes at undergraduate level. We also offer many postgraduate and continuous professional development (CPD) opportunities including Masters in Counselling, Public Health, Advanced Professional Practice and others.


We pride ourselves on our emphasis on participation and our interprofessional relationships. Our ability to draw on academic expertise from disciplines as diverse as biochemistry, business, computing, education, human geography, and psychology, as well as those more traditionally related to health and social care, means that we can consider real-world problems holistically.
