Wolfson’s student support includes academic and pastoral support, and a range of health, welfare and wellbeing support.
- College Tutors
Every student at Wolfson is assigned a personal College Tutor. Tutors are the lynchpin of the College's pastoral system and can offer help and advice on any matter — academic, financial, personal and social. They keep regular office hours during term and can also make individual appointments outside those hours by appointment.
Visit the Tutorial team webpage for more information about the tutorial services available to students in College.
- Academic support
Postgraduate academic support includes mentoring, networking opportunties, workshops to improve your academic English, and the chance present your work at research seminars.
The WolfWorks programme is coordinated by the Librarian and Academic Skills Librarian, and provides targeted advice for Wolfson students to build their academic skill set.
- Financial support
Information regarding scholarships, hardship funds, travel and research grants, as well as bursaries for music, languages and sports are available on our financial support pages.
