Support Mechanisms for Students and Mentors

Every student will be allocated a member of the academic team who will support and advise them individually throughout their course. Academic staff undertaking role are usually referred to as Academic Advisors and they will try to meet with students three times each year to review progression through the programme and the students’ professional development.
