All students are allocated a personal Tutor who can be consulted on any problem which is not strictly subject-related. In cases of personal, financial or more general academic problems, they can offer help or advice, and the earlier you consult them on such matters, the better.
Tutors may be involved with all aspects of an undergraduate’s life. Besides acting as intermediary for you with the University and College authorities, your Tutor may be called upon to represent you outside College. (You may, for instance, ask to have your Tutor present at any interview with the police, or if charged with an offence against the law). Normally you should consult your own Tutor, but, if they are not available or if for any reason you prefer to see another Tutor, all Tutors may be consulted by any undergraduate.
The Undergraduate and Postgraduate Tutors operate an emergency rota during Term, ensuring that there is a Tutor on call each night during Term.
Tutors' Office Hours
These are updated on a termly basis, including Undergraduate and Postgraduate Tutors office hours.
Reporting Arrival and Exeats
You must report to your Tutor within a week of the beginning of term. It is important that you do this. Your Tutor has to certify that you are here to enable your student loan to be released and has to certify your attendance for the requisite number of nights each term. Failure to report will result in a fine of £50.00 in the first instance and the possibility that you may not be able to sit your exams.
Your Tutor is also concerned to make sure that you have no academic, financial or other worries at this time and can often offer help before things get out of hand.
