We recognise the importance of supporting you through your studies, to help you get the most out of time as a student at the University of Aberdeen. As such, you will be assigned a Personal Tutor when you register, (students in Medicine and Dentistry will have a Regent).
Your Personal Tutor will provide general pastoral support and will also meet with you during your studies to encourage you to reflect on your progress. They will advise as to where to get support with regard to curricular choice.
Your Personal Tutor will welcome you to the University community and you will meet with them at key points in the year, either one-to-one or as part of a group, to discuss your experiences as a student.
These meetings will focus on topics such as employability, the Graduate Attribute scheme, and provide an opportunity for you to discuss, for example, the feedback you have received in your studies. Your Personal Tutor will be a facilitator; providing a point of contact should you wish to speak to someone; signposting personal support services and academic skills support across the University, as necessary.
Each School has developed a Personal Tutoring Statement identifying how the system will operate in that area.
