Upon acceptance into Queen's, each student is assigned an Adviser of Studies (AoS) and/or a Personal Tutor (PT).
The primary role of your Advisor of Studies is to help you with module choices and to provide guidance in academic matters, e.g., requirements of your degree programme, progression between stages, resit examinations, change of programme, permissions of absence during term time, temporary withdrawal, etc. In particular, your choice of modules, as well as any changes, must always be approved by your AoS. Students should meet with their AoS at least once a year at enrolment before the start of the academic year.
The primary role of Personal Tutors is to support students in their transition from School or other previous occupation to Higher Education. During your first year, personal tutor meetings will be held throughout term. The aim of these meetings is to provide regular contact with a member of staff in a small-group setting.
Students experiencing any academic difficulty should consult their Adviser of Studies or Personal Tutor at an early stage.
