Personal Tutor (PT)
PPLS runs a Personal Tutor system to support all its undergraduate students.
There are strict deadlines governing degree transfer. PPLS students wishing to transfer degree programme are advised to speak to the PPLS Student Support Officer at an early stage. Transfers are not always straightforward, even for transfers between a combined honours degree and a related single honours degree programme.
Applications to transfer will be considered after the June exam boards and up until Friday of week three, semester one. Decisions are made by the PPLS UG Director and are based on:
- Academic achievement at University
- Academic achievement prior to entry and/or entry qualifications
- Relevant special circumstances
