It seems that 2015 has flown by, and now we’re already entering the exam and assessment period. We hope you’re spending lots of time outside revising in the sunshine while it lasts! We are all too aware though that once the exam panic sets in, it can reach breaking point. But we are here to help you.  

For this reason, we have created the Tutoring@Brunel policy initiative to make sure you are fully supported and prepared for the ups and downs of university life. Each of you should have a personal tutor throughout your time at university; a member of academic staff that you feel comfortable talking to and asking for advice.

Your tutor will be keen to support you and give you guidance over the next month. They are here to help you and it’s completely confidential, so don’t hesitate in telling them about any of your worries. You never know, they might be able to offer a solution and if they cannot they will know who can!

Don’t let little worries turn into big problems; see your tutor, they can help!

If you’re not sure who your personal tutor is or if you have any questions about the policy, please see your course or programme handbook or visit your course reception.
