Open the world map to establish that Septimus can be found north of the College of Winterhold. As the College is on a high cliff, you will first have to get down from it. Head to the city of Winterhold by crossing the bridge connecting the College with the main continent. Now the hard part comes, as you will have to find a spot from which you can safely slide down to the very bottom (screen above). You should find one east of the bridge leading to the College.

After reaching the water (screen above), you will just need to head north. Note, that you don't necessarily have to climb onto the island on which the College is, as you can also swim around it. The most important thing is to constantly move towards the point marked by the game.
