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

You will meet with your tutor 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. You can go to your tutor for academic advice and support with any problems that you may have.

Please do not worry about contacting your PAT with your concerns – your educational and emotional wellbeing is very important to them.
