Student support

Induction week
There is a formal induction week at level 4 (first year) for all new students. Through a programme of activities, you will have the chance to meet your peers on the sociology programme and learn more about your academic lecturers, your Department and the University.

Personal Tutor Scheme
"My personal tutors not only helped me with my final projects, but also provided general support and assistance with assignments throughout my studies." Ewelina Rychlinska, Graduand 2014

The Department's Personal Tutor Scheme will support you in the development of academic skills by providing advice and guidance throughout your studies. Our aim is to enable you to become self-reliant and confident learners. The one-to-one relationship with your personal tutor is a key element in the monitoring of your progress across your modules.

You will meet your personal tutor regularly in timetabled and regular meetings. In these sessions you will receive feedback and support about your progress and development. Your personal tutor will help you to make the transition into higher education, and demands of independent learning. They will help to boost your self-reliance and confidence.

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 programme. They can link to the university Dyslexic and Disability Office which deals with the assessment of all support needs.

Module lecturers
Each module has a convenor who takes responsibility for the teaching and learning experience of all students on a course. The module leader monitors your progress, motivates your learning, monitors your performance and attendance, provides feedback and is responsible for your final grading. All module lecturers are available for individual one-to-one supervision sessions.
