Last week was a Freshers’ Week for new students at Aston University, where MSc SMARTNET and PIXNET participants had an opportunity to meet with their teaching team at one of the on-campus in person sessions.
The purpose of this session for students was to meet and communicate with the module tutors, an important contact for academic rapport. During the session, academics gave advice on students’ work and assignments. MSc students were able to build networks with tutors and to find out about them, their role and how they can support students in SMARTNET and PIXNET programmes. Students were also able to meet their fellow coursemates in this session.
