Academic Advisers

All students on taught programmes at Oxford Brookes will be allocated an Academic Adviser from the academic staff within your Department or School. Your Academic Adviser is a valuable contact throughout your degree. Their role is to work with you to help support your academic development by being an additional source of guidance provided within your subject area. They can also refer you to other sources of specialist information, advice and guidance at Oxford Brookes.

When you start your studies, you will be allocated an Academic Adviser from the academic staff in their Department or School. If you are studying a combined honours course, it will be a member of staff from one of your subjects.

Who is my Academic Adviser?

The name and contact details of your Academic Adviser can be found on your 'Record and Results' page in Student Information

Please note, if you are a research student or professional doctorate student, please refer to the contact details for your studies. You will not have an Academic Adviser.

How do I work with my Academic Adviser?

Your Academic Adviser will work with you throughout your programme of study and their role is to complement the academic guidance provided within your programme and, where appropriate, to refer you to other sources of specialist information, advice and guidance.

Please refer to the Centre for Academic Development website for information about how to work effectively with your Academic Adviser, what they can help you with and how often you should meet with them.
