“The BA International Business Course has not only challenged me about the way I think but has also encouraged me to self-reflect regularly.  The cohort had a wide variety of nationalities which enabled me to learn about my fellow coursemates backgrounds. Furthermore, the international trips have not only made me more culturally aware but have helped me to understand how businesses work both in Europe and Asia. Several guest visits have been organised which have allowed me to gain an insight into various industries and grow my network. The University of Northampton has helped me realise that self-development is just as important as academic knowledge and was integrated in the modules. As an international student, it was quite daunting coming to a new country, however, the University of Northampton made the transition a lot easier. Three years on, I am now a more confident individual and leader equipped with both the necessary knowledge and skills for my masters.”

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.
