Tutorial support and feedback
Support and guidance is provided to help you in the preparation, research, 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 them 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.
As you are 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. 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.
