At Northampton we immerse you in your chosen subject from day one. You will be working on problems and projects that will give you practical insight that will stay with you throughout your learning journey and after you graduate.
We have an increased focus on seminars or tutorials that allow closer interaction between students and a member of staff. This can take the form of one-to-one or small group discussions, allowing for experimentation, exchange of ideas, teamwork and feedback.
This sort of contact time varies depending on your subject – and where or how you are studying – but it may take a virtual rather than face-to-face form through the use of online discussion groups or learning environments and other technology-enabled means.
It’s a ‘blended’ approach to learning that makes the most of students’ – and lecturers’ – time. It puts you at the centre of your own learning by giving you more opportunity to ask questions, delve deeper into your subject, and ultimately give you the experience that will benefit you after you graduate.
