Getting help

Queries about a particular course should be directed to the relevant course organiser. You can also see Dr Keith Brown, Director of Teaching, at any time about any issue.

Personal tutors: All undergraduate students in the school also have a personal tutor. You can talk to your personal tutor about any issue, whether it is personal or study related. You will usually keep the same personal tutor throughout your time as an undergraduate although, if you wish, you can change your personal tutor by contacting Dr Ann Pullen. Further information is available from the Handbook for Honours Students.

College 'parents': All first year students have a college 'parent' - a second year student who can be contacted for help and advice about settling in to student life.

Additional help: The school representative for mature students and students with disabilities is Dr Andrew Davidson (room E46); for international students our representative is is Dr Wael Kafienah (Room G53a).
Support for disabled students is also available from the Access unit for D/deaf and disabled Students.

Personal difficulties: If you have any difficulties that interfere or might interfere with your work then it is essential that you let Dr Keith Brown, Director of Teaching, know as soon as possible. Such matters are seriously taken into account at all stages of assessment but can only usually be considered if they have been reported at the time.

Student self-certification form: If you are absent for up to five days (not counting weekends) you are required to complete a sickness self-certification form and return it to the CMM teaching office (room G53). For longer absences, or where work is missed that contributes significantly to the final assessment, a medical certificate form should be used in addition to the student self-certification form. It should be completed by your doctor.
