During year 1 and 2, you will meet once a week with your personal tutor in a group of no more than four students. These hourly tutorials are an excellent opportunity to discuss the content of the previous week’s lectures, practice problems and discuss areas of physics that interest you. Your tutor is your first point of call for any problems you have and they are supported by a wider welfare system.
In year 3, you will still have a personal tutor for pastoral support as needed but, as courses become more specialised, weekly tutorials are not held in this year and you are encouraged to talk to specific lecturers about your modules as needed. In year 4, the project supervisor will take on the role of your personal tutor.
