We're here to support you both pastorally and academically. Find out what we have to offer and how you can get help!

Academic Support

Family Scheme

Our Family Scheme is run exclusively for First Year students. We group you with some Second or Third Years who can support you as you transition to uni and with anything academic-related.

Personal Tutor

Each student is assigned a Personal Tutor when they join the University of Bristol, and they stay with them for all the years of their degree.

They support you academically and also monitor your personal development. You can go to them at any time, and they should be the first point of contact for any concerns.

Senior Tutor

For more important concerns or academic support, you may wish to contact the Senior Tutor, Dr John Crosby. He's more than happy to chat to anyone, so do drop him an email if you'd like to.

PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions)

First year students have PASS once a week. This is run by Second Year students who were in your position last year!

It's a fantastic opportunity to get to know older students, ask academic questions and get help on the lecture material you're learning.

It's often more beneficial to get help from students who have just learnt it, rather than from academics who are great at lecturing, but didn't learn it themselves last year!

Check your timetable to see when your PASS is. It's optional, but we highly recommend it!
