Supporting your Studies

Personal Tutors

You will find the name of your Personal Tutor in My UCLan. Your personal tutor will usually be a member of staff associated with your course, who, in addition to your course/subject/year tutors, will advise you on your progress and issues such as option choices on your degree programme. Your Personal Tutor can provide you with guidance in academic matters, as well as information about where to go for any additional and specialist help and advice you might need. You will be allocated a named Personal Tutor for the duration of your course. Not sure who your personal tutor is? The 'i' will be able to help. 

M and M Peer Mentoring

The volunteer Peer Mentors scheme is a service offered here at Burnley campus’ and is designed to help new students settle into University life, make friends, deal with personal issues, help them with general academic queries, time management strategies and so much more! Peer Mentors (the person providing the support) support Mentees (the person receiving the support) through face to face meetings and emails to discuss any personal or academic issues. Peer Mentors offer practical support and signposting to other services.

You can find out more information on Mentoring by visiting the Burnley Campus Peer Mentoring Website.

One to One support at the Burnley Campus

You can also get academic support here at the UCLan Burnley Campus from Lesley Martin - if you have any concerns about your academic work, Lesley is here to help.

It may be that you have not written an academic essay before and do not know what is expected, or you may just be a little unsure about your spelling, grammar and general structure. Many students find the correct referencing procedure difficult at first and often do not know how to put a bibliography together - again Lesley can help with these. If you wish to submit your best possible work, let Lesley read it first. Lesley can be contacted on l.martin@burnley.ac.uk.
