We would like to introduce ourselves as the new Student Support Team for the BDS programme: Julie Weeks and Gill Woolerton are joining Angela Hague as Senior Tutors. This role is similar to that provided by the Pre-clinical and Clinical Deans in the past. We aim to work more flexibly to support the five years of dental students.
Julie works with Restorative Dentistry Wednesday to Friday and Gill works with Child Dental Health on Tuesday and Thursday. Their contact details have been placed on Blackboard under Student Support.
The Senior Tutors will work together with the Faculty Student Advisors to support students, coordinate the Personal Tutor system and communicate with University Student Services. We are here to provide local support and advice, and find a source of help for students needing it.
Further good news is that two full time Faculty Student Advisors have been appointed: Claire Moszoro and Amy Wilkinson-Tough. Claire is already in post and Amy will join her at the end of November.
