Is it compulsory for students to attend personal tutor meetings?

  • Tutees should be encouraged to make the most of the support available to them and to attend scheduled meetings as this provides a structured approach to discuss any personal or academic issues impacting on their progress. 
  • Attendance at meetings should be monitored, particularly where the student has a Tier 4 visa. For more information, see the Student Engagement and Attendance Monitoring Policy (Where can I find that?)
  • Failure to respond to a meeting request, confirm a meeting time or failure to attend, may be an indicator of underlying concerns. Early intervention in such cases is often beneficial and prevents escalation of the issue.
