All undergraduates are assigned to a tutor who is from a different subject and academic department to their own, so no tutor is involved in teaching or examining their tutees. Postgraduate students are assigned either to the Postgraduate Tutor or an Assistant Postgraduate Tutor. The tutor is a student's advocate, and is there to support the student and to help with both practical and personal issues as they arise.
Tutors each have regular drop-in sessions each week during Term time, when you can simply turn up; but they are available to be consulted at other times too: simply drop them an email to arrange a time. Most students see their own tutor for most matters, but they are not obliged to. If a student would prefer to consult one of the other tutors for any reason, they are free to do so.
As a minimum, undergraduate students are required to see their tutor for an exeat meeting at the end of each term, but many see them at other times too.
There is also a Rooms Tutor, Mrs Helen Foord, who can be consulted by any student on matters relating to College accommodation.
The Tutors are supported by the rest of the pastoral team, including the College Nurse, Counsellor, Chaplain, and the Academic Office staff.
Contact details of Tutors and members of the Pastoral Team, and their tutorial times are available for current students on the College Intranet (Raven password required).
