The tutorial plan is designed to assist students in adapting to University life.
- A team will be on hand to welcome and help students adapt to university life during first year of study
- A course tutor will be available to talk about personal matters, if needed.
- Tutors will assess you individually or with a group on academic, personal and/or career aspects.
Academic tutorials with the teaching staff responsible for each course will also be held. These sessions help students to clear up doubts and problems about course material and offer guidance activities and assignments.
You will be assisted by a tutor in every year of study. Tutors are usually faculty lecturers who teach subjects in that particular year of study.
Tutors duties include:
- Assessing you individually or with a group on academic, personal and/or professional aspects.
- Speaking on your behalf to the Dean’s Office, the Secretariat and other faculty members.
- Leading and cooperating with actions to improve your university years.
Your tutor is the person to turn to when you have any type of problem or question (about your studies, personal matters that affect your academic performance, new ideas for improvement, etc.).

Student Guidance and Support Service
In addition to assistance from your faculty tutors, the University offers you the Student Guidance and Support Service. This service aims to support and assist you in making decisions that affect your academic performance and personal well being.
The Student Guidance and Support Service also has a psychology section for student consultation. This service is offered free of charge and in full confidentiality. A PhD in Psychology is on hand to discuss all types of problems- emotional, social or academic- as well as your self-improvement and personal development.
Note to students with special educational needs
One of the university’s key duties is to be fully aware of problems within the institution itself and the society we live in. For this reason, specific steps should be taken to boost integration and real equality of opportunity for people with special educational needs. Timely specific action is required to enable them to enter higher education in equal conditions and ensure their full integration in the university community.
