The Graduate Tutors
The graduate tutors undertake important pastoral work with regard to graduate students, helping many to overcome challenges during their degrees. They strongly champion graduate interests at college level, working constructively and effectively with MCR Committees on the wide range of different issues that affect graduates. They also hold mid-table-dining events, where students are invited to the mid-table to dine alongside them at formal hall. This is an important staple of graduate life at Queens’. Through their roles on the graduate committee, they keep their eyes on the long term prospects of the MCR, helping to ensure continuity and progress on graduate issues.
