All students at St Edmund’s, both undergraduates and postgraduates, are assigned a Tutor who is responsible for their general welfare and is the first port of call for help and advice relating to the College.
The role of the Tutor is to provide all-round support and guidance on any aspect of student life; student welfare, financial worries, health issues or maybe to respond with enthusiasm and encouragement to an extra-curricular activity you might be planning and possibly help guide you towards funding opportunities.
Tutors are a student’s main point of contact with the College on many issues, and listed below are some of the ways in which they regularly provide help:
- Introducing and welcoming new students to Cambridge and College life
- Contact for all health matters and problems
- Provision of advice on financial issues – budgeting, hardship, delayed loan payments, funding
- Examinations – special arrangements for examinations, appeals/complaints
- Change of course, intermission, disregarding terms
- Advice on study methods and support in the event of difficulties with courses or supervisors.
