“I really enjoyed this course, the lecturers and tutors are all brilliant and so supportive. While the course content itself is great and covers such a wide range of areas and subjects”

Rosy

Graduate, BA Business Studies

“I highly recommend the BA Business Studies Programme. The course allowed me to find out which aspects of business I enjoyed the most, and in my second and third years I was able to tailor my degree to these. The course gave me crucial knowledge about the world of business and has helped me going forward in my career as I can apply to a range of roles. I am so appreciative of all the support I got from the staff and lecturers, as I knew they were always there when I needed them.”

Sophie

Graduate, BA Business Studies

“The BA business studies programme has given me the opportunity to explore a lot of different areas of business which has presented many career path opportunities as your not tied down to one subject area. The course is a brilliant overview of the business sector from marketing, corporate social responsibility to management. I have really enjoyed this course throughout my three years and to have obtained a First Class makes me very proud. The staff have been very supportive in my development over the last three years and I couldn’t recommend this course and the fantastic staff enough!”

Preparing For Your First Year Of Study

Top five study tips from the Learning Development team!
How can I study successfully at the University of Northampton? Your top five tips from the Learning Development Team:
1. Be Prepared

Becoming a university student requires you to step up your independent learning skills. You need to be able to plan, research and write assignments on your own, which may be something you have not done before. Read through Palgrave's tips for Personal Effectiveness and Independent Study to learn more about the skills you will start to develop as a new undergraduate. 

2. Invest in a planner

Independent learning means that you are in control of your timetable and how you spend your time, so use your time wisely. You will be given times and locations of seminars, workshops and other sessions you have to attend as part of your course at the start. You will also need to allocate time for reading, researching and completing assignments, as well as for all your social activities: get a head start by watching our video What is time management?

3. Fine tune your voice

You might worry that you will not be able to write at the level expected of a university student. At the University of Northampton we take this into consideration and provide lots of support to help you. Go to our online support for academic writing for further guidance. 

4. Get into an argument

Writing critically and developing an argument for your essays and reports is a skill that you will develop throughout your first year of university. Review the guide on how to write more critically to help you understand the process to enhance your critical thinking

5. Know who can help you

Going to university is exciting but it can also be a challenge. We know that students may need a helping hand at any time during their studies, which is why we are here to help. You can book an appointment with a Learning Development tutor for help and guidance with study skills or academic writing, as well as support with maths and statistics. Find out more about the services on offer at the Learning Development page on Skills Hub. You can also find out more about other sources of 1-2-1 help - including our academic librarians - by going to our Study Support page.
