Personal Academic Tutor scheme
The Personal Academic Tutor (PAT) scheme at London Metropolitan University has been designed to support our students with their personal, academic and professional development needs during their journey with the University.
Your PAT will help you to settle into university life, support you in your studies and help to ensure a sense of belonging and community in the Subject and School in which you are based. PATs provide personalised support in a variety of ways, responding to your needs and priorities. This might include guidance on a particular assignment, explaining how assessment and grading works, or even coaching you towards a specific goal.
PATs will also help you to access any other London Met support you might need or direct you to the right teams for help with mitigating circumstances, taking a break from your studies, mental health or fees and finance. Whatever your concerns, your PAT is here to help.
Who is my PAT and how do I get in touch with them?
Your PAT will be assigned to you shortly after enrolment and you will meet with them either digitally or face-to-face at key periods during the year. Your PAT will contact you early in the academic year to arrange your first meeting.
Outside of scheduled meetings, you will be able to initiate appointments with your PAT, ensuring you get the most out of this support feature during your studies. Where possible, your PAT will stay with you for the duration of your time at the University, providing you with support from someone who knows you.
How do I find out about the PAT scheme in my school?
You will be introduced to your PAT during your Welcome Week/Induction period. You can also find out more information by contacting your School Office.
