Student support and guidance tutors
Our student support and guidance tutors (SSGTs) are dedicated to supporting you with any wellbeing issues during your time with us. Each academic school has at least one SSGT. They can provide information and advice on a number of academic or personal issues.
Find out more about what an SSGT can do for you.
You can contact your SSGT as an undergraduate or postgraduate student. New students will be introduced to their SSGT in the first few weeks with us. Meet Stuart Bullen, the SSGT for all students at School of Business and Law, in the video below.
Personal academic tutoring
To help you make the most out of your time at here, you’ll be assigned a personal academic tutor (PAT) at the beginning of your degree. They will provide help and support, such as guiding you through assessment feedback.
Your PAT will be one of the academic staff within your school, and will be your support for academic aspects of your degree that aren’t related to the content of individual modules.
PATs work closely with your Student Support and Guidance Tutor (SSGT). Together, they can help you with a range of issues including homesickness and loneliness, problems with accommodation, the transition to Higher Education, stress-related issues and any mitigating circumstances.

We don’t just want you to succeed, we want you to feel good too; in yourself and your life as well as your studies. Find out more about the support available to you.
