At the start of your course, you will be assigned to an academic member of staff who will be your personal tutor throughout your degree. Your personal tutor can offer guidance and advice on general academic matters such as module choice, as well as pastoral care while you are at university.
Through a series of regular scheduled meetings they will get to know you well and will typically write your reference for prospective employers when you graduate.
New first-year students can choose to be allocated a second-year peer mentor who will guide them through the academic side of life as an economics student in the first semester.
