Personal Tutor meeting, confirming attendance and making course choices

During welcome week (Monday 10th - Friday 14th September 2018) or in Week 1 (Monday 17th - Friday 21st September 2018) you should arrange a one-to-one meeting with your Personal Tutor.  Information on how to prepare for your one-to-one meeting and how to contact your Personal Tutor is included in:

School's Personal Tutoring Statement

Before the meeting, use the online PATH tool to help make your course choices. Once you have selected them you can press a button to send your choices to your PT. At the meeting, your Personal Tutor will confirm your attendance, discuss your course choices, and enrol you on the courses.  Please note: You will not be fully matriculated as a student until you have confirmed your attendance.  You must have arrived and had your attendance confirmed before 17.00 on Friday 28th September 2018 (Week 2).  After this date you will be referred to the College Office and you may not be permitted to commence your studies.
