What We Do

You will be assigned an Academic Cohort Lead (ACL) who will stay with you throughout your time at university and offer support and advice about your particular programme.

We can help you make appropriate course choices to tailor your degree programme to your aspirations or intended career. We will also facilitate group-based welcome and transition activities.
