Tutoring System


Student tutors

Tutoring is an organized help for students based on a personal approach.

Student tutors guide their protégés (students) and advise them on how to solve their problems. The tutor can also advise students on their choice of study fields, elective courses, further studies, etc. The purpose of tutoring is  to strengthen the contacts between students by exchanging useful information and experiences in the field of studies and student affairs.

Tutors from Master's study programs can offer undergraduate students information from their personal study experience.

How do I become student tutor?

It's easy! Student tutor can be any student who successfully completed their first year and is enrolled as a BSc, MSc or PhD student at UP FAMNIT. Tutor candidate should fill in the application form and deliver it to the Office of Student Services. Applicants who meet the conditions of the call for applications and are selected will receive a formal decision on their appointment as student tutors. The term of office of a student tutor is one academic year.

The Senate of the University of Primorska at its 26th regular session on 23. 3. 2022 adopted the new Rules on the tutoring system at the University of Primorska, which came into force on 9 May 2022.

The Rules stipulate that the Open Call for tutors is published at least once a year, no later than 1 March.

The call for student tutors in the academic year 2022/23 was this year exceptionally  published after the proposed deadline (according to the new rules), namely 21 April 2022.

Tutor work report

Student tutor is required to submit a report on their work as tutor for each academic year, no later than 30 June. Standardized form is available here. The tutor must ensure that the report is co-signed by the coordinator of student tutors, who confirms the content of the report.

Tutor must submit the report to the Office of Student Services which then forwards the report to the teacher tutor coordinator for review.

Based on the approved report and the coordinator of teacher tutor’s recommendation, the competent commission decides on the recognition of the tutoring work. Tutor receives a certificate of their work and an entry in their diploma supplement.

Useful information

The tutors have some useful materials available to help them with their work.

You can read everything about the tutoring system in the Priročniku za tutorje Univerze na Primorskem.Tutoring guides for students with special needs and for foreign students are also available.

Training of student tutors

Tutors have the opportunity for education and training in various workshops and sessions. These are conducted within the framework of Continuing Education for tutors.

Here you can watch a short video about the training of tutors during past academic years.

Teacher tutors

Teacher tutors advise mainly individually. They help students with their studies with the aim of improving their academic achievements in individual fields of study, advise on the choice of elective courses and answer questions about progression to a higher year, completion of studies, and the choice of mentor in the final work. In particular, teacher tutors are available to students with the status of a student with special needs and together they create an individualized study plan.
