1.2 Your tutor

On most modules you’ll be allocated a tutor, also known as an associate lecturer, who’ll support you throughout your module, mark your assignments and give you feedback.

During a module your tutor is likely to be the first person you turn to for help and advice. This next video gives you an idea of the role your tutor plays in your studies.

If you’re an Apprentice and/or studying on a professional programme, you will also have a practice tutor. Your practice tutor will support you throughout your programme to integrate your academic learning into your professional work, and develop your portfolio. You will meet with your Practice Tutor and Line manager on a 12-weekly basis to review progress and plan future activities, these are known as ‘tripartite meetings’.

Next, meet the Computing and Distribution helpdesk.
