Personal Tutor meeting, confirming attendance and making course choices

During welcome week (Monday 11th - Friday 15th September) or in Week 1 (Monday 18th - Friday 22nd September) 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 29th September (week 2).  After this date you will be referred to the College Office and you may not be permitted to commence your studies.

Teaching Support Vacancies

The School of Informatics is able to offer a wide range of part-time tutoring, demonstrating, marking and related jobs to students who are currently studying at the University of Edinburgh.  Previous employees have reported that this type of work provides a valuable insight for those considering a career in academia and a useful transferable skill for those of you whose future lies elsewhere.  Work on a particular course might also improve your knowledge of a subject area, or open up new research opportunities.  We hope that you will benefit from this exposure to the teaching environment. More information and a list of current vacancies can be found on our Teaching Support webpages:
