Get Started in the School of English
Welcome to the School of English! We want to make it as easy as possible for you to start your course so on this page we've put together useful links and resources in one place to help you with your first few weeks at University.
Find your Student Hub!
All students are given access to an online Community or Student Experience Hub. The hubs can be found on Moodle (UG and PGT courses) and Sharepoint (PGR).
Your personal tutor is there to help support your profesional and academic development, as well as helping to support pastoral and wellbeing needs.
You can find the name of your personal tutor through the MyNottingham app and on School of English notice boards.
Contact details for all School of English staff are available on our People pages.

The Student IT Support Tutors are current students who are on hand to help fellow students with IT problems and offer IT advice. For the start of term they are available through virtual Smart Bar sessions.

Peer Mentors are students currently studying in the School who volunteer to use their experiences to support, guide and help new students settle in to the School and wider University.
We aim to provide mentors to new first year, 2+2 and PGT students. PGR students are supported through the University’s ADAPT mentoring scheme.
