As an Academic Adviser, you have a key role in promoting students' sense of belonging to an academic community and supporting their development as a successful learner within Brookes and beyond.
Academic guidance includes:
Lyn Bibbings, Academic Adviser in the Business and Management Department in the Business Faculty, talks of working with the advisee to become the best that they can be at university and beyond.
Leander Reeves, Academic Adviser in the International Centre for Publishing Studies, on being an 'academic cheerleader'.
In relation to advising on careers and employability, you should aid students in providing evidence for their Higher Education Achievement Record. This might include signposting information, advice and guidance available from the Careers Centre.
Academic guidance is an extremely important part of a student's experience, and one that is associated with improvements in satisfaction, retention and academic success, which is why we have Academic Advisers. The role of Academic Adviser forms part of the University's Academic Guidance Framework, which involves many other Central and Faculty-based supports for students.
