Your Course Induction

Course inductions are essential activities that take place at the start of the term. They 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 three steps

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

Your induction timetable tells you what to expect and where to be in your first week of your course.

It's crucial that you attend all your course induction activities, so make sure you search for your course induction page to find your start date and induction timetable and make arrangements to arrive in good time for this.

You can get to know your way around campus on our information pages.

Most course induction pages will also have a pre-arrival task alongside your induction timetable. This is designed to get you thinking about your subject. The task is an important part of your induction, so complete it before you arrive.

See your course induction page for more information.

Your course timetable will tell you where to be and when for the whole academic year, and will be available on NOW after you complete your enrolment.

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

If you’re studying at Confetti, you’ll receive a copy of your timetable during your course induction. It’ll also be available on NOW, as a downloadable PDF.
