Registry Student Support

The Registry Student Support team sits within the University Registry, providing advice and support for matters relating to the academic record where students are requesting a change of circumstance, such as Leave of Absence, Withdrawal, Mode of Attendance (part/full time study) and Fieldwork. We work closely with Student Services when students are experiencing difficulties, referring students on where appropriate.

We can provide information and have a drop-in service for students wishing to consider the various options relating to changes in circumstances, as well as taking forward requests for changes to the student record for approval.

Letizia Vettor

As a Registry Co-ordinator, I work with both undergraduate and taught postgraduate students to help them explore their options and make well-informed decisions with regards to any planned or unplanned changes to their studies. I am experienced in offering academic advice, mentoring and pastoral care to students, having worked as a tutor and an Assistant Warden for several years at the University of St Andrews whilst studying for my doctoral degree in Italian and Classical studies. Since joining Registry in February 2017, I have enjoyed working collaboratively with other teams, as well as with Student Services, the Proctor's Office, academic staff, and student representatives, in order to offer information, support and guidance to students, ensuring that each transition is managed smoothly and efficiently.  

Adam Welstead

In my role as Registry Co-ordinator (Student Support), I liaise with colleagues across the University to ensure that undergraduate and taught postgraduate changes of circumstance are managed smoothly. I regularly meet with students to provide clear advice and information on areas such as the leave of absence process, withdrawing and changes to mode of attendance, and work closely with colleagues from Registry, Student Services, academic schools and the Proctor’s Office in order that each student receives a streamlined service. I have been a proud St Andrean since 2012, as both an MLitt and PhD student at the University. Through my experiences as an academic tutor at the School of English, as a former listening volunteer and executive committee member of St Andrews Nightline, and as a staff member within the University’s wardennial team, I have developed a strong understanding of the academic and non-academic challenges faced by St Andrews students, and remain committed to being a helpful point of contact for students during periods of transition in their studies.
