Personal development for undergraduate students

We’re here to support you in your academic throughout your time at Strathclyde. We do this through a series of personal development advice meetings.

What are personal development advice meetings?

The meetings are relatively informal and can be around:

  • your transition from school/college/employment to university, from one year to the next, or from university to employment and further study
  • course choice
  • clarification of expectations/responsibilities
  • encouragement of self-reflection and planning
  • monitoring and giving you developmental feedback

You can expect to have a minimum of three personal development advising meetings in your first year. You’ll then have two in your second and third years and one in your final year.

These meetings may be in a group or individual meetings with a member of academic staff or someone from the Careers Service.
