We're delighted you're thinking about joining us.

Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 outbreak, we wanted to reassure you that we’re doing everything we can to make sure the College is a safe and welcoming place.

Things are a little different this year and we have been working hard to process all applications remotely.

Applying for a full-time course

Becoming a student at Northampton College is easier than you think. If you’re ready to apply for a full-time course, you can do so by:

Filling out a paper form
If you have a copy of our full-time prospectus, there is an application form inside the back cover. Once you have filled this in, return it back to The Enrolment Centre, Northampton College, Badby Road West, Daventry, NN11 4HJ. We will receive your application within 10 days.

Applying online
Click here to access our full-time application form online. By applying online, your application will be received by the College the same day.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we recommend applying online at this time. Our college campuses are accessible by appointment only, and will only be authorised where necessary. Please call 0300 123 2344 for further information.

Once you have applied, you will be made an offer and we will follow up with a welcome call to provide more information about the course. This will be your chance to ask any questions you may have about college.

The level of course that you will study will be confirmed when you join us, taking into consideration the grades you have been awarded.

The majority of the enrolment process will need to be completed online, but you will also be invited in to college for a small induction session.
