Personal tutor scheme

The teaching team is committed to providing the support you need to facilitate your transition to university life. We pride ourselves on our approachability and readiness to help. The personal tutor scheme, designed to help you from your very first week, is the embodiment of this commitment. As an integral part of your first year of study, you will be placed in a small seminar group, led by the same member of the teaching team for the whole year. That seminar leader will also be your personal tutor not just for the first year, but throughout your degree providing support in your learning, your personal development and in developing your career aspirations.
