Personal tutoring and the new student support model

Information about personal tutoring and the new student support model which is gradually being introduced across the University.

Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught students

In 2022/23, most Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught students at Moray House will have a Personal Tutor: a named member of academic staff who will support you throughout your time at the University, providing academic guidance and a route to pastoral support. Students on a small number of programmes will instead have a ‘Student Adviser’ and a ‘Cohort Lead’ as part of the new student support model (we will let you know if you are on one of these programmes). Both the University’s Personal Tutor system and the new student support model aim to help you to:

  • become a more confident learner in your discipline
  • play an active part in your academic community
  • reflect on your academic progress
  • make effective use of your academic feedback
  • engage in effective career planning
  • access academic and pastoral support to help you during your degree
