The Department aims to offer students outstanding and distinctive learning and teaching in an environment that encourages them to become independent thinkers and learners. You will be allocated an academic supervisor who is there to offer you support and advice throughout your degree programme. Your supervisor will meet with you on a termly basis to discuss your academic progress and check that all is well with you and your studies. This is an important point of academic contact for all students. Your supervisor will encourage you to develop your academic and personal skills (see Personal Development Planning) and can also act as a referee for any applications you might make in the future.
They can advise what to do if things go wrong and refer you to the right people in the University for help with more personal matters.
If you are an overseas student on a Tier 4 visa, you will need to attend at least two individual meetings per term with your supervisor.
