Academic advising in practice

  • What do you need to do on a more practical level as an Academic Adviser? How many meetings with your advisees, one-to-one or in a group, at a distance or face-to-face, and what type of conversations should you be having? 

    You will receive enquiries from your advisees about what to do if they are concerned about meeting an assessment deadline.  Refer them to Oxford Brookes’ Exceptional Circumstances information: /students/your-studies/exceptional-circumstances/

    You may also wish to suggest that advisees seek support from your Faculty Student Support Coordinator team: /students/support-services/ssc/
