New students

Congratulations on receiving a place at the University of Northampton. We’re looking forward to welcoming you at the University when your course starts.

The New Students section of the website contains all of the information that you need to fully prepare yourself for starting to study with us.

If you are a Home student (UK or EU) and have not yet enrolled, please sign up to one of the enrolment sessions on either 10th or 12th October from 9.30am to 10.15am taking place in the Creative Hub foyer.

International students enrolling for our autumn intake will usually arrive in early September. If you have not yet enrolled please visit the Student Information Desk in the Learning Hub to book an appointment. Students on certain professional courses will enrol at specific times which you will be notified about.

Once you have enrolled you may find it useful to download our New students induction checklist which covers some key things to do in your first few weeks.

We also have dedicated information for Joint Honours, Postgraduate students and International students.

If you’d like to meet fellow freshers or find out who you’ll be studying and sharing accommodation with, you can join our new students group on Facebook. You can also visit the Students’ Union website for further information about SU events.

We hope you will enjoy and value your time here with us and we look forward to meeting you soon.
