Programme Support

Guidance and support during the programme of study is available from a number of different sources.

Course Tutors provide advice on the content, assessment and conduct of individual courses.

Your Personal Tutor should be your first point of contact for matters relating to academic and pastoral support. They are available to advise you about your choice of courses, to support you as you plan your programme of study and to help you to address personal problems affecting your academic work. It is your responsibility to inform your Personal Tutor immediately of any problems that are interfering with your coursework or progress.

Dissertation Supervisors are there to guide and support you through the dissertation process.

The Programme Director is available to answer questions in relation to the programme as a whole, or issues you may have that you prefer not to discuss with your Personal Tutor, course tutor or dissertation supervisor.

Support is also available from various university support services – you will find more about these in the programme handbook.

Administrative Support

Administrative support is provided primarily by Angela Hunter, as above. If you need further advice on any aspect of programme administration, including fees, you should contact the Postgraduate Office of the College of Humanities and Social Science.
