Course leaders and course teams
During your studies you will learn from a range of staff members who may teach you at different times and in different ways. One of the figures who will be central to your experience will be your course leader. By following this link, you will be able to find out a bit more about them and how to get in touch.
One of the most useful documents of which you need to be aware is the course handbook. This document includes all the important information about your course, including the teaching team, the administrative team and their contact details, course structure, modules, assessment and examination, aims and learning outcomes, and a career planning agreement. This document can be accessed in your course area on StudentCentral, under ‘Your Course Handbook’. You will be able to access StudentCentral once you have completed online enrolment.
Personal Academic Tutor
The Personal Academic Tutoring scheme is designed to ensure that all students have regular opportunities to review their personal, academic and career development.
You will normally be assigned a Personal Academic Tutor at the beginning of your degree. Your personal tutor will be one of the academic staff in your school, usually someone who teaches on your course.
Your Personal Academic Tutor is there to keep an eye on your overall academic and personal welfare and to advise you about other sources of help in the university such as Student Services, the Academic Study Network on Studentcentral and the Students’ Union.
You will usually get a chance to meet your tutor during induction week or soon afterwards, and will then have one or two scheduled meetings a year to review your academic progress. You can also contact your tutor whenever you need advice on any matter, or to let them know about issues affecting your work or wellbeing.
You can find more information about it on this page.
Student Support and Guidance Tutor
Student Support and Guidance Tutors (SSGTs) are an invaluable source of information and advice, working to provide relevant and timely assistance on a range of issues that might be impacting your studies. You can find out more information about them on this page.
