Wednesday 9 October

A visit from your College Advisor to see how you are getting on. All full time UG degree students will be assigned a College Advisor. This is usually a member of staff or a postgraduate student who has volunteered to act as someone you can talk to in confidence outside your department should you need to. They are also very happy to hear from you at any time and will have a chat over a coffee just to see how you are doing.

In your first year you will see your advisor a couple of times – or as many times as you wish. They will remain your College Advisor for the duration of your studies.

We will email you with details when you have arrived.

See you soon, Fyldeans!
