The department has an official personal tutoring agreement, setting out in detail what the responsibilities and expectations are for both staff and students within the system. Students will be given this in hard copy during their first meeting with their personal tutor.

The Classics Society Mentoring Scheme
Mentoring occurs through a series of conversations in which one person (Mentor) draws on their experience, expertise and knowledge to advise and guide a less experienced person (Mentee) in order to enhance their performance and support their development.
Applications to become a mentor open in term 3.
All first year students within the Classics Department are allocated two student mentors for the duration of the academic year.
