Student Support and Personal Tutoring

Welcome to UCL Medical School Student Support and Personal Tutoring Services. This site provides information about Medical School personal tutoring, financial assistance, careers support and more.

What is MBBS Student Support and Personal Tutoring?

Every medical student has a personal tutor. 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

How can I get in touch with my personal tutor?

Your personal tutor is assigned to your in the ASR (Academic Student Record). You can log in and view their name and contact details, and any notes of previous appointments that have been made in ASR. If you're still not sure who your personal tutor is, please get in touch. If you're in Year 4 or Year 5, you can also book with a Site Senior Tutor at your current site.

Where can I get more specific advice on the course and MBBS regulations?

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, and more. Your personal tutor may refer you to the ODT for further advice, or you can contact them directly at medsch.mbbstutors@ucl.ac.uk.

I'm still not sure who to speak to in the Medical School?

We have a flowchart below that explains who you can turn to for advice and support. And 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.
