There is an induction week in the first year for all new students. Through a programme of activities, students have the chance to meet their peers on the Criminology BSc(Hons) and learn more about the Department of Criminology and Sociology.
When students arrive, we'll introduce them to their personal tutor. The personal tutor is the member of academic staff who will support a student's progress throughout their time at Kingston University. Students meet their personal tutor regularly in the first year to help make the transition into higher education.
The personal tutor shows students how to make the best use of all the help and resources that we offer. They give students academic guidance and make sure that they know how to access our other support services if they need them.
Personal tutors are also available to ensure students with Statement of Support Needs (SoSNs) are able to fully access the teaching and learning experience offered by the Criminology BSc(Hons). Personal tutors are advised by the University's Student Life Centre who deal with the assessment of all support needs.
Each module has a leader who motivates students' learning, monitors their performance and provides feedback. All module lecturers are available for individual one-to-one supervision sessions.
