Personal Tutors' Portal

Welcome to the personal tutoring website


White Space

Personal Tutoring is a distinctive feature of higher education in the UK. At UCL, every student is provided with a Personal Tutor, who takes an interest in them as an individual and who offers guidance on their overall academic progress and personal and professional development.

"Every student at UCL should have at least one member of academic staff who takes an interest in their progress and development."

 - Prof Anthony Smith, Vice-Provost (Education & Student Affairs)


If and when needed, the Personal Tutor provides a safety net for the students' physical, mental and emotional welfare; acting as a point of referral to avert crisis. However, the normal tutoring role provides facilitation and guidance on a more everyday basis, so that the student can independently integrate the academic and extracurricular elements of their learning and development.
