We first set up the group tutoring service for new students in 1999. Today, there are around 80 tutors for students on the undergraduate and integrated degree programmes of our twelve Faculties.
Tutors are carefully selected graduated, newly-graduated or Doctoral students who offer their experience and time to new students, welcoming and supporting them throughout their university studies.
Their role is to help students settle into university life context by providing useful information, delivering individual or group guidance sessions on academic issues and helping students in difficulty.
Why use a tutor?
The group tutoring service is available within each of the University’s Faculties, but only for students on undergraduate and integrated degree programmes.
Tutors are available to students on a weekly basis at the set meeting time, either in person or by telephone or email, and there is no need to schedule an appointment. Find out when and where meetings take place by clicking on Chi è il tuo tutor (Who is your tutor?) on your web page.
If you are a new student, your tutor can help with arranging your timetable, checking course syllabuses, discovering University services and understanding how to use them, navigating the website and using iCatt and Blackboard tools. Remember to always check your iCatt inbox: your tutor will contact you with invitations to important information and social events to help you make the most of your university experience.
Even second- or third-year students can use the tutoring service for personalised advice on organisation and study skills.
