Directors of Studies

Directors of Studies are responsible for advising and directing undergraduates on their academic work.  They are responsible for engaging supervisors on behalf of the College and for exercising a general oversight of teaching and learning in their Tripos subject and for giving general advice on it. They communicate with the Senior Tutor and Tutors, as appropriate, about the progress of undergraduates, in particular about any difficulties that affect an undergraduate’s academic performance.

For a more detailed description of the Roles of Tutors, Supervisors and directors of Studies please see the current Student Handbook.
