The purpose of tutoring is to guide and assist students, to make them more aware of the choices and opportunities offered to them, encouraging their active participation in all stages of their education, from the moment they choose their degree programme to the moment they graduate and enter the world of work.

Tutoring offers

  • support to students throughout their studies;
  • help to remove any obstacles to successful course attendance and active participation in all educational and extracurricular activities.

The University offers two different types of tutoring services

  • Informative tutoring: information is provided on timetables, programmes, and choice of degree programme, specialisation  and study plan;
  • Cognitive tutoring: this includes tutorials, seminars on selected topics, interactive teaching in small groups (10-20 students), zero-level courses to better approach new or difficult subjects, choice of study method, and exam simulation.

Tutoring activities are carried out by

  • Tutor teachers belonging to each department, who are responsible for informing and assisting students facing difficulties in choosing their degree programme and specialisation, as well as the study plan, or in drafting the thesis work, or, more in general, facing any educational problems affecting the smooth progress of studies.
  • Student tutors pertaining to each department, who are selected through specific calls for applications. Their tasks are to: 
  • guide and assist students; 
  • collect and manage data and questionnaires; 
  • provide specific support to the degree programmes most in need of support according to the instructions of the University Guidance Committee (C.O.At.); 
  • remove any learning obstacles, by helping those who do not have/lack a study method to pick one; 
  • remove any obstacles to profitable course attendance and to active participation in all educational activities, also through initiatives tailored to the aptitude requirements and needs of individual courses; 
  • carry out any other guidance and tutoring activities based on the instructions of the University Commission for Tutoring.


The most significant tutoring activities can be summarised as follows:

  • calls to select individuals to carry out tutoring activities;                             
  • curricular internships;
  • internships for admission to health professions, aimed at students who have obtained their qualifications in EU and non-EU countries;
  • organisation of start-up training courses for students;
  • joint activities between the Faculty Committees and the University Guidance Committee (C.O.At.).
