Becoming part of a high-powered academic community brings many exciting new challenges and opportunities but can also bring stresses and strains. Most undergraduates cope with these through their own efforts or with the aid of their family and friends. In addition, Selwyn is committed to providing a wide range of pastoral support centered on its Tutorial system. You will see that Tutors play a key role in the College’s Fitness to StudyRespect and Dignity, and Academic Committee procedures as well as the University’s Examination complaints and review processes (see more details here). They are also a crucial part of the College’s Harassment and Sexual Misconduct processes.

Your relationships with your Tutor and your Director of Studies form the central part of the extensive support system that is available to you and those two individuals are generally the best ones to approach for initial advice.
