New research students: getting started

FAQ: I am a new research student and the next induction week is some time away.  What do I need to know now?

First of all – welcome to the University of Northampton! There are plenty of people here to help you get started with your research – your supervisor of course, but also a number of people in the Graduate School and the Library.  If you have any questions, please don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Your top priority will be to make sure that you can access the university computer network and the various services that it offers.  The checklist for new research students elsewhere on the Research Support Hub (this blog) describes what you need to do to achieve this.
