University Students

Northamptonshire Credit Union works in partnership with the University of Northampton to offer services to students and staff. Our activity at the University comes under the banner of Changemaker Credit Union.

The Credit Union supports students through a student version of our banking facility, known as the Budget Plus Account. This provides students with a way of managing their money during each term, as well as offering cashback facilities in partnership with a range of shops. Students can earn 3% cashback at ASDA, 4% at Argos, and 7% at New Look.

To apply for the Budget Plus Account, click here to register.

Students also co-ordinate the local activities of the Changemaker Credit Union, forming a local management board to set objectives for campus activities and carry out promotional work.

You can find out more about the student team at the Changemaker Credit Union's Youtube page.

The University of Northampton has held Changemaker status since 2013, in recognition of its commitment to social enterprise and the opportunities provided to students. This designation was awarded by Ashoka U, the world's leading network of social entrepreneurs.


Becoming financially fit for life is an important step for university students because it sets them on a road of sustainable success rather than a life of unnecessary debt.

The Northants Credit Union is running a workshop where they'll be setting the sails for creating a new and exciting banking proposition from the existing resources and products already in the market.

You can participate in helping develop a "bank account for the future" for students. All comers are welcome, whether student, lecturer or member of the public.

Our first meeting is on 27th July at 3pm - 4pm in the C309, Cottesbrooke, Northampton University Park Campus, Boughton Green Road, Northampton, NN2 7AL
