Academic support

When you begin your postgraduate studies you'll be allocated a supervisor or advisers by your University faculty. We can support you too.

Graduate tutors

We have a Graduate Tutor, a Deputy Graduate Tutor and an Assistant Graduate Tutor who work as part of the overall Tutorial team within the College. Their role is to select, maintain, and support an active and vibrant postgraduate community.

They act on behalf of our postgraduates, from attending College committees to submitting appeals and allowances. Our Graduate Tutor is happy to have a chat with you if you need some support with an academic issue. 

College contacts

In your first year as a postgraduate you'll be assigned a College Contact who is a Jesus Fellow based in a subject close to your own degree, usually someone different to your faculty supervisor or adviser.

Your College Contact is a connection to both Fellows and undergraduates in your subject at Jesus, but they may also be able to help you with advice about your course or other issues in your faculty.

If you're a current student seeking academic support, or you're thinking of joining us and you'd like to know more, get in touch with the Senior Postgraduate Administrator by calling +44 (0)1223 339421 or emailing graduate-tutor@jesus.cam.ac.uk.
