Student Staff Liaison Committee
The Student Staff Liaison Committee meets once a term
and consists of a selection of academic members of staff and student representatives from all Essex Pathways Department programmes. The
committee acts as a forum for students to express their opinions about modules, to suggest improvements, and to make recommendations
which could help the Department enhance student experience.

Personal Tutors are assigned to all students studying on the International Foundation Programme,
Year 0, International Year One, Graduate Diploma, Essex English Language Programme and Pre-sessional programmes of 10-weeks and over.
Personal Tutors can offer advice and support on most academic, social or personal issues and are able to guide students towards other
support within the University where necessary.
Students will be expected to meet with their personal tutors at least twice a term but they are able to arrange further meetings
when required. The Senior Tutor, Dr Anyarath Kitwiwattanachai,
heads up the personal tutor team and is also the Personal Tutor for all under 18 students.
Student Services Hub
Your Student Services Hub can offer advice on funding, debt, welfare issues and employment
and visa issues for International Students. It also includes the disability team for information and advice on academic support
for those with a disability; and provides access to professional counsellors through the Counselling Service.
The Students' Union Advice Centre gives advice on such
matters as money management, housing contracts and problems, legal issues and visa renewals.
