Pastoral support and guidance is provided for taught postgraduate students in their School. 

 

Each School provides this in different ways.  The School will contact their students and explain the support provided. The pastoral support and guidance will help the students settle in to the University and to take advantage of the opportunities available to them in their studies and more widely in the University. Details can also be provided of more specialist support if this would be helpful.

Postgraduate Taught Pastoral Leads

 

Pastoral support and guidance is provided for taught postgraduate students through your School.

Your PGT pastoral support lead is a member of staff who can guide you with any problem that is affecting your experience at University. Whether it’s a personal matter or related to your course, talk to your pastoral support lead for advice and they’ll refer you to our wider support services if necessary. 

Pastoral Support is still available to students studying remotely, with meetings taking place online.

Find out who to contact in your school below, or email Professor Abbe Brown, Dean for Student Support.
