In the healthcare programmes offered by the School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition the academic support functions of Personal Tutors are taken by the Year Lead teams. The School operates an additional longstanding pastoral support system known as the Regent Scheme. Each healthcare student is assigned to a senior member of University or NHS staff who will meet with them regularly and be available to provide support and guidance on any personal problems that the student may have during their course. The Regent can also act as a mentor to support the student’s professional development.
