Personal tutoring – Plymouth Business School

As a student in the Plymouth Business School you will be assigned a personal tutor from the beginning of your studies.

Your personal tutor is generally a member of staff from within your course discipline. When there are larger groups of students on a specific course, you may be assigned a personal tutor from another course.

You can find resources for each meeting and read detailed information about the tutorial system in the Personal Tutoring section within PBS Teaching and Learning on the DLE.
