This is a critical review of the various kinds of help and support which institutions of higher education provide for their students. It looks at students, their problems, their development and the way they cope with transitions - all within an interpersonal and social context. The author examines the tutorial relationship, drawing out some of the difficulties and ambiguities in the tutor's role, offers an explanation for some of the uncertainty in this area, and sets an agenda for the future. His recurring theme is that helping students is not some kind of "extra" which may be tacked on as a supplement to the educational experience but is an integral element in the educational process.
