Every student at the University of Northampton is assigned a Personal Academic Tutor (PAT). They will usually be a tutor from your main subject area and may teach you in one or more of your modules.

You will meet with your PAT early in the first term and at arranged times during the year. Your PAT is responsible for overseeing your academic and personal progress during your course and is an important source of advice. Your PAT will also support you with any general problems or uncertainties that you have.
