The Student Progress Review enables you to review your progress on your programme of study and provides a framework to assist you in achieving your academic goals. You can view the Student Progress Reviews Policy and Procedure for reference.

Although it is often arranged by your Personal Tutor, you can request an appointment especially when you know things may be affecting your studies, or may do in the future.

The Progress Review appointment is a discussion between you and a tutor regarding aspects that may be affecting your ability to progress or achieve in your studies (eg: health concerns, something happening in your personal life or related to your academic or practice skills).

It's a positive and structured process that offers support in your studies when you need it most. The Students’ Union can offer information, advice and guidance about Student Progress Reviews or any concerns you may have that could impact on your studies.

You are welcome to advise us of what you believe an appropriate reasonable adjustment to be.
