Personal tutors and pastoral care
When you arrive at Leicester you'll be allocated a personal tutor who is there to support you throughout your academic journey. They can give advice about your studies, career opportunities, any mitigating circumstances, or even any personal problems that you may be experiencing. Your personal tutor may also act as your academic referee when you come to apply for jobs.
Whilst they are there primarily to support you, they will also monitor your attendance and speak to you if you are getting behind in your studies.
Details of the personal tutor system may vary from department to department so you'll be able to find out more when you arrive.
