Tutorial support and feedback
Tutors will provide you with appropriate support and guidance on request to assist you in the preparation, process, and writing-up stages of your work.
Your tutors will provide you with written comments on each assignment, and you are invited to make contact with the tutors to discuss this feedback. The written comments will include the un-moderated grades (ie. subject to amendments by the Examinations Board) and advice for future action where appropriate.
Because you will be working at an advanced level, we assume that much of your time will be spent planning and carrying out systematic inquiries and preparation for assignments and dissertation. The role of your tutor will be crucial in providing intellectual and moral support and challenge for these processes. Tutors regard this support role as a high professional priority.
