Can't import numpy or other Python libraries

I am trying to use a matlab wrapper for a Python library that requires numpy, along with some other dependencies. I do not have admistrator permissions on this computer (so cannot use pip or other protocols to install numpy) and have to resort to installing these libraries on user space rather than system space. I have started this process by downloading the numpy library from github. Next, I added the path where I downloaded numpy. Then I used py.importlib.import_module() with arguments 'numpy' and even the full location of numpy and both times received an error:
Error using <frozen importlib>_find_and_load_unlocked (line 953)
Python Error: ModuleNotFoundError: No module named '/home/brian/Packages/numpy'
Error in <frozen importlib>_find_and_load (line 971)
Error in <frozen importlib>_gcd_import (line 994)
Error in __init__>import_module (line 126)
return _bootstrap._gcd_import(name[level:], package, level)
I'm not sure I'm doing the right thing here, and was wondering what I'm doing wrong or if there are alternatives that will solve my issue.

You need to add your packages directory in your python's search path.
Here is an example.
pysys = py.sys.path;
np = py.importlib.import_module('numpy');
Or, instead of using py.sys.path.append, you can use PYTHONPATH enviroment.

I tried this too, no idea why it's not working...

Actually, what I tried on my Windows machine was,
Download numpy package from GitHub.
Install the package in custom folder (C:\Temp\Packages) using on Command Prompt.
python install --install-lib C:\Temp\Packages
Use numpy from MATLAB Command Window.
pysys = py.sys.path;
np = py.importlib.import_module('numpy');
I hope this helps.

Thanks – I think this should fix it, but at the moment I am now having issues with user permissions for installing the cython dependency. I will update once that is resolved.
