Portrait of man's face

A lecturer in Management and Organisational Behaviour has been recognised for his support of undergraduates and postgraduates through Cardiff University’s personal tutoring system.

Dr Robin Burrow, from Cardiff Business School, picked up the Personal Tutor of the Year Award at an annual ceremony which rewards nominees’ commitment to enriching the student experience.

The Enriching Student Life Awards, organised by Cardiff University Students' Union, are an opportunity for students to nominate the members of staff and fellow students who have made a difference to their studies and experience.

Dr Burrow said: “I feel very lucky to have been nominated for this award. It was entirely unexpected as I know just how hard colleagues are working to support students in their roles as personal tutors…”

“It’s important to me that students feel supported and able to make the most of their time with us at University, so I’m very glad that I was able to make a difference.”
