    Each student has a Director of Studies who overseas their academic career while at Cambridge. They will monitor and discuss your progress with you, arrange your supervisions, and can advise on issues relating to your course.

    You can expect to see your Director of Studies at the start and end of every Term. If you need to see your Director of Studies at any other time, you should arrange an appointment via email.
