Personal tutor system
All of our students have a personal tutor in the department for the entire period they are at the University to provide pastoral care, guidance and advice. Personal tutors are members of the academic staff who are available to students seeking advice, reassurance and help where necessary. You will first meet your personal tutor during the enrolment week before classes begin at the start of your first year of study. You will then be invited to visit your personal tutor once a semester for as long as you are studying at Cardiff University, although you will also have access to him/her at other times should the need arise.
Your personal tutor can direct you to resources, advice and assistance within the University to deal with a wide range of problems (financial, academic, emotional, etc). Most students develop an informal, but professional, relationship with their personal tutor, who provides a consistent point of contact throughout your course of study.
Disability and Specific Needs
The School is committed to creating an inclusive culture based on equality and diversity, and to providing an accessible learning environment for all students. Every applicant is considered on an individual basis and we welcome applications from students with disabilities. If you would like to discuss any specific requirements you may have, you are invited to contact either the University Disability and Dyslexia Service or the School Disability Contact.
Once studying, support is available within the School for students with particular needs or disabilities through personal tutors or the School disability contacts.
