PAT Resources

Welcome to PAT Resources.

Explanation of resources:
The University of Huddersfield PAT policy defines the scope and expectations of the role, as well as good practice.

‘The University takes an individualised approach to supporting each of its students to achieve their best. Personal Academic Tutors (PATs) have an important role to play in this, guiding students towards the most appropriate support, and helping them achieve their academic potential. Every student is different. Some will come to University, adapt to their new surroundings straight away and flourish. Others may struggle with adapting to their new academic environment. PATs are there for students to help them get the most out of their time at University and to discuss academic progress, but they are also there to direct students towards appropriate support services such as wellbeing and finance should personal problems arise.’ (University of Huddersfield Personal Academic Tutoring Policy, 2017)
