Academic support tuition is personalised, purposeful and structured support to help you achieve your personal goals for academic success, personal development, career progression and employability.
You'll be offered encouragement and advice to enhance your success as a student through the development of a meaningful and accessible tutoring relationship.
As an undergraduate or taught postgraduate student, you are allocated an Academic Support Tutor (AST) who will be a stable and consistent point of contact and academic support throughout your time at university.
Who is my Academic Support Tutor (AST)?
Your AST will be a member of academic staff from your subject area. They will provide continuous academic guidance, help you to review and reflect on your achievements and progress, and empower you to take charge of your academic success and development of graduate attributes.
Your AST will be assigned to you before you start at university and may contact you before your first day on campus. You will meet with your AST during induction, and continue to meet with them on a one-to-one basis, in addition to group meetings with other tutees from your subject area whilst here at Hull.
What are the benefits of academic support tuition?
Your AST will work in partnership with you throughout your time at Hull to help develop and nurture essential skills to enable you to succeed at university.
By attending individual meetings, you'll develop a meaningful relationship with your AST and have the opportunity to discuss and reflect on your academic progress in a supportive environment. Through group meetings, you will build social relationships with others on your course and develop important academic, employability and personal skills that will benefit you at university and beyond.
