Tutoring is a programme of support and counselling for students, with the aim of facilitating their integration into university education, providing guidance in choosing the most appropriate didactic, cultural and social options specific to student life, with the objective of improving academic results. The tutorial system encourages communication and students’ trust towards the university and the academic environment.

A list of tutors for each year, series of studies, with their contact details (office, email, landline) will be created and displayed at the level of each faculty, and as the tutorial programme develops, each group of students will have a tutor.

Students will be encouraged to present their problems and request tutor support mainly electronically. Electronic tutoring, as a modern form of expression of personal tutoring, will be encouraged by all means.


  • To adapt and integrate students as well as possible into academic life
  • To optimise students’ achievements in the learning process
  • Personal development and professional orientation of students
  • Facilitate student-teacher-administration communication
  • Early identification of possible problems related to the teaching process
  • Removing the impression of insecurity in the education process


Tutoring consists of the tutor’s personal communication activities with the students who are assigned to them, by either direct meetings or through electronically.

During his activity, the tutor must be communicative, show patience and interest, be willing to understand the student’s problems, giving the students confidence in the usefulness of his actions.
