PTs are automatically selected for each student by the DE department at the beginning of their studies when they begin their courses. The DE must notify the student and the College registry of this allocation as soon as possible.
If the students prefer to choose their PTs themselves, they can ask the DE; however the DE has the right to accept or deny their application.
All PTs will be selected amongst the College faculty members.
The PT/Tutee ratio will vary; however, it usually will be in the range of 1:5 to 1:15.
PTs/tutees may request a change of tutee/PT at any time during their studies at the College without being required to divulge why. The DE therefore will follow their procedure to review and then facilitate this.
If a PT leaves or is absent for a prolonged period of time, the DE must be assured that an alternative tutorial arrangement has been made for his/her tutees.
