2. Meet Your Tutor

You will receive an email in your MyTCD inbox (where you register) before you arrive which will tell you when your Tutor is available to meet with you during Freshers' Week. You must attend one of the two slots they will have available. If you can't make the times in the letter, email your Tutor and arrange an alternative meeting. Your Tutor will be really important for you during your time in College, so it's important that you meet them early.
