Get to know your department

Personal tutor 

Your personal tutor will be your main point of contact and link to the department. They will be there to support you with both academic and personal matters, take an interest in your progress, and offer guidance on your personal development. You will be assigned a tutor at the beginning of your course, and they will arrange group and individual tutorials via email and Microsoft Teams to help you settle in.  

If you have any questions about your course in the meantime, please email 

In addition to your personal tutor, the department has a support network of academic staff in place to help answer your questions.
