Actions for Personal Tutors

Confirming attendance

You are still required to confirm attendance for students on exchange.  Please only do so after you have received communication from the student that they have arrived at the partner institution.  If this is not possible by the end of Week 2 due to the late start of academic term of the host university, please add a note for record on EUCLID, but hold off confirming attendance until you confirm the arrival.

Confirming course enrolment status

Please make sure that the student's course enrolment record for Year 3 has been properly updated in EUCLID so that it indicates "Non-compulsory year abroad (full year) - level 10". If the record has not been updated by the end of Week 2 and it still shows some usual course names, please contact the Informatics Exchange Coordinator, Hiroshi Shimodaira.

Checking on progress throughout the year

Please maintain contact with your students whilst they are abroad, checking in on progress as you would a student in Edinburgh.

Engagement monitoring for students on a Tier 4 visa

In addition to the attendance confirmation in September, for Tier 4 students, please confirm continued engagement in the first week of  every month between October and June. Confirmation can be done via email or online call. Please add discussion note or email to EUCLID event record.
