Support for our students
Providing the best student experience possible is of the utmost importance to us at the College of Engineering, and we have well-established systems and support staff in place in order to facilitate this.
Academic Mentor Programme
Each student is assigned a Personal Academic Mentor (previously known as Personal Tutors) with whom they meet throughout the year in a series of compulsory individual and group sessions. Your Personal Academic Mentor is there to provide support and encouragement to achieve your academic potential and as an individual academic contact for every student.
Academic Office Hours
All teaching staff have designated office hours during the week, where students are encouraged to drop in to discuss lecture content, request assignment feedback or to raise any academic issues that they have.
A Student Representative is elected from each programme for each year of study to provide the feedback and views of the student body on a range of topics to academic and support staff at the monthly Student-Staff Forums.
Our dedicated front-of-house team is available all day Monday-Friday to manage and respond to any student enquiries and to signpost students to the appropriate member of staff. Our support teams organise careers events and promote job opportunities, ensure the student body is informed of important College news, and are available throughout the week to deal with a range of academic and welfare issues.
Each programme of study has a dedicated member of academic staff who acts as their Employability Champion. They provide guidance and support to students regarding careers, utilise their industry links and relationships, and organise events such as careers fairs and guest speakers to enhance the employability of our students.
Student Intranet, MyUni and Blackboard online pages are regularly updated with relevant resources, including: lecture notes, assignment/exam results and feedback, careers event information and graduate job opportunities.
