Your Course Induction

Course inductions take place in the first few weeks of term and are designed to introduce you to your course and how you'll learn at NTU – from our online teaching tools, to the buildings and facilities that you'll use as part of your studies.


Your course induction in four steps

It’s important to attend your course induction because it will help you understand how you are expected to study, summarise the highlights of your subject, and give you the opportunity to make friends on your course.

If you can’t attend your induction, please contact your School and let them know.

Step 1: Download your course induction timetable

View your induction timetable and make sure you check your course start date and arrive in time for this. Most course inductions will start as early as Monday 20 September, with some starting even sooner, so be sure to view your course induction timetable now and to arrive in good time for your first day of induction. You should also plan your welcome activities around your course induction.

It's crucial that you attend all your course induction activities, either online or in-person where possible, so make sure you know where you need to be and when. Get to know your way around campus on our information pages.

Step 2: Complete your pre-arrival task

Most courses have a pre-arrival task, designed to get you thinking about your subject. The task is an important part of your induction, so complete it before you arrive.

You'll find details of any pre-arrival tasks alongside your course induction timetable.

Step 3: View your course timetable

Your course timetable will be available on NOW after you complete your enrolment.

NOW is NTU's Online Workspace. It's where you'll find your timetable and information about your course, including reading lists and prep work. You'll also use NOW to submit your assessments online.

Step 4: Complete your NTU online induction modules

Once you have completed your enrolment, you’ll be able to access your NTU Online Induction via NOW, which we recommend you complete at your own pace before you arrive.

The NTU online induction is designed to help you prepare for student life on your own terms, and to welcome you into the NTU Community ahead of your course start date. The module consists of four units to help you get started which include:

  • Transition to NTU
  • Online Learning at NTU
  • Wellbeing and Support
  • Community and Active Citizenship
