Your time at university is an opportunity to achieve your goals. To help you make the best choices on how to spend your time with us at University, you can speak to your Personal Academic Tutor (PAT). They are allocated to you at the start of the year and are there to help you – from settling in to University life to walking across the stage at graduation, and everything in between.
Your PAT will be in touch at various points in the academic year to see how you are getting on. But you don’t have to wait for them to contact you. If you want to talk about how to achieve your ambitions, secure a work placement, your academic success or have a confidential talk about something that is important to you, you can arrange to see your PAT at any time. Your PAT is also in a great position to signpost you to some of our more specialist support services and can help you if you need to understand how our policies and processes work.
You will be allocated a PAT during the first few weeks of term. Until then, your Programme Leader will be your named personal contact.
