Law & Social Sciences Personal Advisors & Year Tutors
Personal Advisors – Law and Social Sciences
All students in the Faculty of Law and Social Sciences have access to a member of academic staff as Personal Advisor. The Advisor is a first point of reference for individual students to provide support on any personal or general academic matter. The Personal Advisor can provide an initial source of advice for pastoral and welfare matters and alert the relevant student support facilities and teachers if a student is having problems affecting their academic work. The Personal Advisor, or any other member of staff, may direct students towards the Professional Services for specialised support.
Who is your personal Advisor?
Arrangements for Personal Advisors differ between Departments and Centres, so you should check your Department’s own web page or with the Department’s Student Support Officer in the Faculty Office. In some cases your advisor will be individually designated by the Department (School of Law, Politics and International Studies, Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy). Otherwise it will be a year or admissions tutor or programme convenor.
What you can expect from your Personal Advisor
It is in your own interest to contact and make use of your Personal Advisor who can:
• take an active part in helping you as a new student to settle into the School
• contact and meet you at regular intervals throughout the academic year, either as a group or individually
• if you are a continuing student, remind you at the beginning of each year of their interest and availability for meetings/consultations
• assist with any personal matters that may arise and act as first point of referral to Student Support Services available in the School
• provide continuity of pastoral and general support and guidance
• monitor your personal and professional development
• contribute toward the compilation of a reference, if appropriate
• inform the Faculty Student Support Office if they feel you are giving ‘cause for care and concern’ so that any problems may be addressed
