students working together

Personal Tutor Programme

Each week, every student meets with their personal tutor to discuss their progress. These meetings are an opportunity to affirm their strengths, and work with them to remove any obstacles that could stand in the way of achieving their absolute best. These hurdles may concern their well-being, (both physical and emotional), learning skills, or simply the steps one encounters on the way to becoming an independent student at university. An ongoing dialogue between students, tutors, teachers and parents ensures a prompt and efficient response to any existing issues that may arise.

Personal tutors will set development goals with their tutees at the start of each half term and regularly follow up on their progress. Each cohort has specific personal development priorities which will be addressed during prevalent times of the academic year. Tutors will follow up in one-to-one meetings as part of student’s reflective development.

For international students, regular reviews of their progress and the close liaison between the specialist English teachers and academic teachers ensures support is tailored to the individual student’s needs.
