First year tutorials

Back to course summary


First year tutorialFor the modules Physics 1A and Physics 1B each student will attend one tutorial and one problem-solving class per week. The tutorials will involve discussions on lecture material and the solution of numerical problems based on the course. Students are also encouraged to contact their lecturers and tutors on an individual basis with any queries.

For the other first year modules, there will be one tutorial per week involving small-group discussions on current lecture courses.  Although personal tutorials are not usually offered, the lecturers are always happy to discuss with individual students any issues arising out of course material.

A feature of the tutorial programme is that written work is required to be handed in regularly to tutors for marking.  In the case of The Physical Universe, this will include a small number of essays.
