When I start Goldsmiths, each student on my course will be assigned a personal tutor. I will have that tutor throughout the duration of my studies.

Personal tutors are a complete waste of time I had the same one in my 1st/2nd year and we were supposed to have a certain amount of meetings and never did. And even when I emailed him he never bothered to reply
I had a supervisor in my final year and he wasnt much better either

My personal tutor is fab. Can see her pretty much when I want to/if I need too. Has pretty decent office hours but will reply to email within a day, even over weekends.
We have twice termly meetings with her as a group which are pretty useful but we're welcome to go see her about other more individual stuff. VERY pro-active about her students - any complaints and she acts on it immediately with quick feedback.
Get the right one and PTs can be godsends!
