ACADEMIC SUPPORT TUTORS (AST’s)
Academic Support Tutors are members of staff from your department. Your Academic Support Tutor is there for you to talk to about any academic problem you are experiencing, give you advice and guidance and to point you in the direction of further help, support and advice. Each Faculty also has a Senior Tutor. This is someone from another Faculty who you can approach for independent support if you can’t resolve a matter internally.
