3.1 Personal Tutors (16/17)

Each student is assigned a Personal Tutor at the beginning of the degree programme. The Personal Tutor advises on choosing course unit options and monitors progress throughout the degree programme. Four official meetings are scheduled each academic year: a meeting in registration week at the beginning of the academic year, a meeting to consider progress at the end of the first semester, a mid-year progress meeting in week four of the second semester, and an end of year meeting following the June examination period. However, at all times during the year, students should feel free to approach their Personal Tutors on matters affecting study and on personal problems.
