School of GeoSciences

Support and facilities

We understand that the prospect of starting university can be daunting. Don’t worry - we will look after you while you are here.

Academic and pastoral care

With a dedicated Personal Tutor, you will be in safe hands. Your Personal Tutor will meet with you regularly to discuss your progress and aspirations, and will be your first point of contact should you encounter any difficulties with your studies.

Additionally, we have two Student Support Coordinators in the School who will work closely with any student who encounters a problem throughout their time with us.

Emma Latto

As an Ecological and Environmental Sciences student, your Student Support Coordinator will be Emma Latto.

We recently launched a successful PALs scheme - Peer Assisted Learning - where older students meet with new students to mentor them and offer advice and guidance.
