How to find your tutor’s email

Tips to keep up to date with email

It is important to keep up with your emails to ensure you don’t miss any important information from tutors or employment opportunities. Check out these tips and never miss a University email again:

  • Receive emails on your phone or tablet. By setting up your emails on your phone you can allow notifications to see emails as they arrive in your inbox. You can have multiple email accounts on a device which means you can still receive your personal emails alongside your University ones. Find out how to do this on iPhone or other Apple devices or using an Android e.g. Samsung. 
  • Set up auto forwarding. If you use your personal email address more often than your University email you might want to set up automatic forwarding to read your emails in your personal inbox.
