As a new undergraduate student, you will be allocated to a Personal Tutor and Tutor Group. These groups are led by a member of academic staff that acts as designated personal tutor throughout your entire period of study.
You will meet with your personal tutor twice as a group and twice individually each semester. Personal Tutoring plays an important part in enabling you to fully engage and have a successful learning experience at university. The role of the Personal Tutor at St Mary's is to:
- Support your knowledge and understanding of feedback on assessed work
- Signpost you to relevant support and advisory services
Having a Personal Tutor provides you with the opportunity to reflect on your learning and academic progress, and to discuss and formulate appropriate strategies to fulfil your potential.
In addition, Personal Tutors will be able to advise you on the facilities and services available to support your pastoral welfare. You will have access to our career development service and receive guidance on skills development throughout your studies.
