The Department is welcoming a new Director of Student Experience in August 2018, Dr Gioia Panzarella. Her role is to enhance your university career by building on the support provided to you by your personal tutor, organising skills sessions and other events for the cohort and being available for one to one meetings throughout the year. You are welcome to meet with her to discuss any aspect of your university experience - either academic or pastoral. Please do make use of such meetings as they will be useful for both your academic progression and future plans.
Matters which you might discuss with Gioia include:
Study skills - how to prepare for seminars, how to improve your academic work, and how to make best use of the support available elsewhere.
Module choices - advice on module choices within GSD, and where to turn for advice regarding your partner Department.
Careers - internships, postgraduate study, enhancing your employability (you can also speak to Dr. Nathalie Dalton-King about this).
Personal Development - any pastoral issues that you may wish to discuss
Informal Feedback - share any thoughts you have on your course (positive or negative).
