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


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