Personal tutoring is a crucial aspect of how the University supports you, helping you fulfil your academic and personal potential.

How can personal tutors help me?

You can speak to your personal tutor about:

  • planning which modules to take
  • choosing option modules
  • gaining further study skills
  • any matters affecting your studies

Your tutor can also direct you to other University support services or put you in touch with a senior tutor, disability learning support, or the University’s counselling service for specialist advice, if appropriate.

Who is my personal tutor?

If you're a student on a course lasting more than a year, you'll be allocated a personal tutor.

To check who your tutor is, you’ll just need to:

  • log in to My Student Record
  • click on the ‘My Profile’ tab
  • in the ‘My details’ box, click on ‘View My Profile’
  • your personal tutor’s name will be at the bottom right, where it says ‘Tutor’ – below ‘Mode’ and ‘Current Status’

If you don’t know the contact details of your personal tutor, you can check our A-Z staff directory.

If your tutor’s name is not displayed, check with your course leader.
