Student support

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences has some of the best success rates for undergraduate students in the university. We have over the years instituted a number of student support initiatives which facilitate student success.

Perhaps the best-known of these is our extensive tutor-mentor programme in which senior students trained as tutors provide support to first years. 

Clinical facilitators are programme specific clinicians who look after the needs of students in their clinical years. An early warning system has been developed to identify and assist at-risk students.

In addition, we work in close collaboration with the SU's Centre for Student Counselling and Development (CSCD) in providing the necessary support services to our student body and maintain excellent relationships with the staff and management of the CSCD.
