Welcome and Induction

Welcome and Induction will give you the opportunity to make new friends and feel like a member of our community. You will feel well prepared to begin studying and know that University staff are here to help and support you.

Our Welcome Guide provides lots of information about all our support services for new students, maps and a checklist to help you as you start studying with us.

Our Welcome and Induction Guidance is a useful starting point to get to know how the introduction to university works.

During the first few weeks will give you the very best start and provide you with the opportunity:

  • to get to know other students including those in your tutor group.
  • to help you to become familiar with the academic study expectation on your programme.
  • to learn about working, living and socialising together as a member of the University of Northampton community.
  • to help to find your way around the Waterside Campus.

We will also provide you with an individual session with your Personal Academic Tutor (PAT) and timetabled academic orientation activity.

The Students’ Union work in close partnership with the University of Northampton, including sessions which they run alongside Welcome and Induction.
