College Tutors

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 he or she is not available or if for any reason you prefer to see another Tutor, all Tutors may be consulted by any undergraduate. The Undergraduate and Graduate Tutors operate an emergency rota during Term, ensuring that there is a Tutor on call each night during Term.

Reporting Arrival

Each Term you must “report your arrival” to your Tutor, who is responsible for certifying that you have “kept” sufficient terms to qualify for your degree (see ‘Reporting Arrival & Exeats in the Term Dates and Vacation Arrangements section).

Times for reporting arrival are available here, and also are posted both near the Dining Hall and on the individual Tutors’ doors. Please avoid problems by coming as early as possible, you will be fined £50 if you do not report on time.

Tutors' Office Hours

Tutors have scheduled office hours each week during term time when students can just turn up to see them. The times and dates are available here and are also posted both near the Dining Hall and on the individual Tutor’s doors.
