Personal Tutorials

Every school assigns a Personal Tutor to each student. Personal Tutors are academic members of staff and their responsibility is to provide students with support and guidance.

We work together with other student service providers to ensure students receive the necessary information, advice and guidance to make informed choices about their studies and their future.

We direct students to the most appropriate university support services and suggest appropriate activities to make the most of their university experience, deal with difficulties they might encounter, and take advantage of opportunities offered by the University.
