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 and in particular all new students starting in January 2019. Please see Enrolment times and enrolment information.

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 have any questions as a new student, then please contact the Student Information Desk, as your first point of contact.

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 HonoursPostgraduate 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.
