Student with lecturer

Each department has a network in place to support your academic and personal development throughout your time here.

This includes:

  • your course director (taught postgraduate students) or academic supervisor (research postgraduate students) who is your primary point of guidance and support throughout your time here
  • a personal tutor (for Master’s students on larger courses) and members of your research group in the case of research students
  • a dedicated Postgraduate Tutor and Director of Postgraduate Studies, who are responsible for the overall smooth running of your department’s postgraduate teaching and research

If your tutors cannot help, or you feel uncomfortable talking to them about certain issues, then they will be able to suggest whom you might talk to.
