Student Support and Personal Tutoring

Welcome to UCL Medical School Student Support and Personal Tutoring Services! This site provides information about Medical School financial assistance, careers support and our personal tutoring scheme providing tutors at Huntley Street in Years 1-2 and on-site personal tutors in Years 4-6.

Our Office of the Divisional Tutor can provide support and advice on specific areas of the course and the regulations. This includes health concerns impacting your studies, extenuating circumstances, interrupting your studies, electives, and more.

Appointments are usually by referral from your personal tutor. You can self-book an appointment to discuss electives. If you're in Year 6 and want to speak to someone in the central team for support. And if you have a specific need that you think is better discussed with an MBBS Tutor rather than your personal tutor, please email medsch.mbbstutors@ucl.ac.uk for advice.

As a UCL medical student, we recognise that you may find yourself facing all sorts of pressures and challenges navigating a long programme of study, especially with extensive placements in clinical environments. Our friendly team is here to help you through the good times and bad. We offer:

  • Pastoral support
  • Academic support and study skills
  • Careers advice
  • Advice about financial support
  • Directions to the most appropriate contacts in the university for further support

In the sections below you will find more information about our services, including how to make an appointment with your Personal Tutor or (in Years 4 - 5) a Site Senior Personal Tutor.

Any questions at all about personal tutoring and support, please contact us directly using the details below. We hope you have a happy and rewarding experience at UCLMS, and we're always here to help!
