The University Tutoring Service provides orientation and assistance to students throughout their studies. It helps them to participate actively in their own education and aims at removing obstacles to a beneficial attendance of courses. 


The Tutoring Service undertakes a long series of activities designed to assist students in getting the most out of their university experience. With close ties to the university’s Careers Advice Service, which works with students from the sixth form right up to their matriculation, the Tutoring Service specifically targets students who are enrolled on university courses. Each School has its own Tutoring Service, but all of these are co-ordinated centrally on a university-wide level. At the early stages of a student’s university career, the Tutoring Service serves to bridge the gap between secondary school and university, thus easing the often problematic transition to the kind of research and study required by the university.

However, the tutors’ function is not limited to welcoming students to the university. It will rather continue throughout their studies. As students progress through their university courses, they are less in need of information, but come to require an increasing degree of assistance with their studies. It is the role of tutors to follow students throughout their university careers, helping them to overcome any difficulties, improving the quality of their learning, to help them to develop study plans, to organise foreign stays and to take advantage of educational opportunities before and after their degree.


Tutors also seek to encourage part-time, working students to continue with their studies. Our tutors also work in close connection with the Job Placement Office, seeking to ease students’ access to the world of work.
