Academic Committee Requirements
Following decisions of the Academic Committee in July 2008 and in March 2010, every UCL department is expected to set up and conduct personal tutoring arrangements within new guidelines specified in Appendix AC 3/32 (09/10).
The key elements of these guidelines are:
- All academic staff are expected to contribute to the Personal Tutoring scheme.
- Graduate students with appropriate training may also be involved.
- Personal Tutors should remain the same for each student for the duration of their programme of study, where practical.
- The reporting structure will be Personal Tutor to Departmental Tutor to Faculty Tutor to JSSC, chaired by the Dean of Students (Welfare)
- In Year 1, a minimum of 5 formal meetings with Personal Tutor, of which 3 must be one-to-one, with further opportunities for students to drop in on their Personal Tutor.
- In subsequent years, there should be a minimum of 3 formal meetings per year, with further opportunities for students to drop in on their Personal Tutor.
- The purpose of these meetings will be to support learning and to provide pastoral care. This will include facilitating personal and professional development in all years of study, as well as identifying problems and advising or making referrals as appropriate.
- In year 1, there should also be promotion of, and coordination with, the Transition Programme now operating in all departments.
