“Choosing to remain at the University of Northampton for my MA was an easy decision, because of the wonderful time I had during my undergraduate study. The UON experience is very supportive, encouraging and motivational and I’ve always been impressed by the level of support and knowledge provided by both the academic and non-academic staff.”
