There are a range of students for whom remote tutoring might be their only way to speak to you outside of core contact teaching and learning times. Most individual and group tutorials are likely to happen in a face-to-face setting. However, there may be occasions when remote meetings are needed or preferred e.g. part time students, those with work or caring commitments, students with health or medical conditions, for students on placement, or any other circumstances where coming to campus might be more challenging.
Using virtual spaces and other online communication tools (including the telephone) can be effective and help to keep lines of communication open between Advisors and Advisees.
