They also both achieved over 90% student recognition that staff are good at explaining things in the 2022 National Student Survey. If you have worries abut your work we won't wait for them to become problems. You'll have a personal tutor from one department and a Joint Honours advisor from the other. They will support your academic progress and help find solutions to any issues.
"As a personal tutor, I work with you on your academic progress, but I also have a pastoral role with regards to your well-being. I see how you get on across all your modules, which enables discussions about you as an individual."
