For matters outside the School, the best place to look is the Student Help website, which provides information on many aspects of student life.
Students should be registered for units for the session totalling 120 credits. You should check your unit registration as soon as possible by visiting your StudentInfo page: www.bris.ac.uk/studentinfo/. If you believe your unit registration information is incorrect and/or your units do not total 120 credits, please contact the Humanities School Office by visiting the Office or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Joint Honours students should contact their second School/department if the units in that subject are incorrect.
If you would like to change any of your options then you will have the opportunity to request this in the first two teaching weeks of next term (Monday 10th to Friday 21st Oct). You will need to visit the School Office in person to make an appointment to check availability of spaces and complete a Unit Transfer form. Please note that changes to unit registrations may take 2-3 days to feed through into personalised timetables.
Important note: All students who registered an interest in taking an Open Unit on their option choice form have been allocated to a departmental unit in the first instance. If you would like to continue with the choice of an Open Unit, you must now proceed as follows:
· Check with the relevant department that spaces on that unit are available
· Check the timetable for that unit to ensure there are no timetable clashes with your other units
· Print off and complete the School’s Open Unit form (please see below under Forms)and take this to the relevant department. The department will need to sign the form and register you for the unit
· Return the form to the Humanities School Office so that your Humanities record can be updated.
Personal tutor lists can be found on your departmental notice boards or departmental webpages. It is important that you check this information as your personal tutor may have changed from last year.
Your personal tutor’s role is to act as the first point of contact within the University from whom you can obtain general academic guidance and pastoral support. Your personal tutor will normally make arrangements to see you either individually or in groups at least 3 times a year. You can also arrange to see your personal tutor at other times if the need arises. Personal tutors are available during their designated ‘consultation hours’ these details can be found on your departmental web pages. It is your responsibility to attend meetings arranged with your personal tutor. If for any reason you cannot attend, you should let your tutor know in advance so that alternative arrangements can be made.
Further details regarding the personal tutoring system can be found on your departmental web pages or at www.bristol.ac.uk/esu/studentlearning/pt/
The Student Handbooks will be available online on the departmental webpages. Hard copies of the Handbook are no longer being distributed to returning students; instead you should make sure you read the online version. The Handbook contains important information about your programme of study, assessment deadlines, and regulations and procedures. Changes have been made to the Handbook, so please ensure you read it. Please note that the Handbook will be published by 4 October, but may not be available before then.
The Departmental Student Handbook should be read in conjunction with the University Student Handbook and the Faculty Undergraduate Handbook, which are made available on the University and Faculty pages for Current Students.
