What is a personal tutor?
Every student at the university will be assigned a personal tutor when the register. If you are a student in medicine or dentistry you will have a regent.
The role of the personal tutor is to provide support for students throughout their time at university and to help them make the most of it. Your personal tutor is there to provide general guidance and to provide a point of contact should you need someone to talk to.
Throughout the year you will be able to meet with your personal tutor either as part of a group or on an individual basis. Although if you would prefer to arrange a one to one appointment to discuss an issue this is possible. These meetings during the academic year will centre on topics like employability and graduate attributes.
Your personal tutor is an important contact for a student to have as they are your first point of call for any issues you have and will be able to point you in the direction of the best person to resolve the issue or provide more information.
Each school has created a personal tutoring statement with details how the tutoring system will work in their school, for your schools statement and more information on personal tutors go here.
