Academic and Wellbeing Support

Areas of support for students at the Business School:

  • Academic Tutor 
    Each student is assigned an Academic Tutor who should be a first point of contact for advice and support during your time in the Business School. As well as overseeing your academic progress and helping you to identify development opportunities, your Academic Tutor can also refer you to specialist academic, wellbeing and careers guidance. You can see them during their office hours, or email with a query or for an appointment at another time.

You can check iExeter to find out the name of your Academic Tutor.

  • Module Leads
    Your Module Leads have weekly office hours (term time only) during which you can ask for help with understanding module content, assignments or exam preparation. You can also contact them via email.

Module Leads' office hours and contact information will appear on their module’s ELE page.

  • Academic Development Support
    Throughout your studies you have access to many resources and workshops to support you in developing your academic skills. You can also make an appointment with the Academic Development Tutor for help with general approaches to your studies, or for support in interpreting assignment briefs, feedback and marking criteria. Visit the Academic Development Programme ELE page for more information.
  • Education Support Team
    The Education Support Team provides practical help with processes such as mitigation, exams information, extensions and assignment submissions. To contact them, please e-mail or visit them at the Information Point in the reception area of Building:One. They can also help you with wellbeing issues and refer you to specialist support.
