Welcome to the Programme and Progression Support Team's page, where you'll find out how to speak to our team and what we can do for you.

Who is the Divisional Tutor?

The Divisional Tutor for the MBBS, Dr William Coppola, leads our experienced team of MBBS Tutors. The Divisional Tutor is responsible for areas relating to student progression and ensuring that students have a rewarding time at UCLMS, whilst working within the regulatory constraints of the MBBS.

What do the MBBS Tutors do?

Our team of tutors can provide clear and accessible advice on specific areas of the course and the regulations, with a view to helping you make the best decisions for you. They cover:
  • course interventions like interruption
  • health concerns
  • personal, financial and social factors that may impact on progression and performance
  • elective planning
  • fitness to practise issues (if they arise)

Who can I speak to at the medical school if I'm worried about something?

We have a flowchart below that explains who you can turn to for advice and support. If you’re still not sure where to turn, or would like some general advice, then please contact medsch.mbbstutors@ucl.ac.uk and our team can direct you to the right place.
