We would urge all students to respond to the invitation, and meet with your PT to discuss your academic progress, your general well-being at University and any questions you might have.

 

Particularly, first year students – remember that at this stage you change the course choices you made in September. And in exceptional circumstances you can even change your degree subjects.

 

If in doubt – ask for advice!

Your tutor will be in touch with you near the start of term 2 to make arrangements with you for a mutually convenient time to meet to discuss your progress over the preceding term and your plans and preparations for the coming term.
