Welcome Week Activities

Welcome to the University and to your programme! We look forward to meeting you during welcome week.

 

During welcome week, we have designed a programme of events and activities designed to give you the very best start to your time here by introducing you to university life and help you to settle in quickly. Please check your welcome week timetable online to ensure you attend all of the sessions as this is your opportunity to meet your personal tutor, myself and your fellow course mates.

During the lead up to welcome week and during the course of the week, this site will be updated with information regarding the sessions you will be attending to get your familiar with your programme, the university, academic skills etc.

You will have the opportunity to meet one to one with your personal tutor during the week; please check back here during welcome week to find out where and when this will take place.

We would also love you to join us for our 1st year day of fun event at Drayton Manor Theme Park. You will need to book your free place on the trip which takes place on Friday 27th September (places are limited).

Study Trip Opportunities 

As part of your programme, you will have lots of exciting opportunities, including the chance to attend study trips in the UK and overseas.

In previous years, students have travelled to destinations such as Istanbul, Barcelona, Budapest and Lisbon to learn about cultural, business and sports tourism, and experience new and exciting places for themselves. UK trips have also included London Olympic Sites and York to learn about heritage tourism, mega events and visitor attraction management.

We will be providing you with information regarding this academic years’ optional  study trip opportunities during welcome week, so make sure you loo out for these annoucements and book your place quickly to avoid missing out.

Follow us and hit ‘like’ on our tourism social media pages to stay up to date with opportunities, events and competitions!

I really found that the University is for students who want to learn and progress – during my studies I achieved the confidence to say ‘I can do that’ and the skills to then ‘do it’.

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.
