Student Support and Guidance Tutors
Our Student Support and Guidance Tutors (SSGTs) are dedicated to supporting any issues which may be affecting your wellbeing whilst at the university.
Each academic school has at least one SSGT. They are a great source of information and advice on issues that might be impacting your studies and personal life.
Find out more about what an SSGT can do for you:
SSGTs are available for all students, including those who are undertaking postgraduate study. New students will be introduced to their SSGT in the first few weeks with us. Virtually meet your new SSGT in the videos below.

Personal academic tutoring
To help you make the most out of your time at the University of Brighton, you will be assigned a Personal Academic Tutor (PAT) at the beginning of your degree to help you develop skills to achieve your goals, such as guiding you through assessment feedback from all of your modules.
Your PAT will be one of the academic staff within your schools and will be your support for all academic aspects of your degree which isn’t related to the content of any individual modules.
PATs work closely with your Student Support and Guidance Tutor (SSGT), who will prove support on a range of issues such as homesickness and loneliness, problems with accommodation, transition to Higher Education, stress-related issues and 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. You can find out more about your support system on our website.
