Postgraduate Research Tutor

The Postgraduate Research Tutor has a key strategic and operational role within the academic unit.

Postgraduate Research Tutors (PGRTs) are managed by relevant Heads of School or academic unit and also report to the Faculty Director of Postgraduate Research Studies. They will work as a team through the Faculty Graduate School, coordinating with the Director for PGR Studies and other PGRTs to ensure strategy and policy for postgraduate research are implemented effectively.

They contribute to postgraduate strategy and policy, participating in annual planning exercises, and lead on recruitment and studentship matters for PGRs to support school strategic objectives for postgraduate research. 

They are often the first point of contact for academic / pastoral issues raised by PGRs within their School / academic unit. Where Schools are larger the PGRT role may be split out into key areas such as admission, on-programme and / or support/well-being
