 Peer Tutoring Project

The Peer Tutoring Project provides support to new students arriving at Universidade do Minho (UMinho) on relevant issues, such as: the University’s structural and functional aspects; the development of cooperation relationships between colleagues; the improvement of academic, social, personal and professional skills that aim for an education based on quality and professional success. 

The peer tutoring system provides students with a personalized support carried out by other students (tutors) from the UMinho.

Any student from UMinho is welcome to join the Peer Tutoring Project team either as a tutor or as a tutee. For Tutors, the only pre requisite is to be enrolled in the second year (minimum) of any degree course. The candidates will need to follow a pre-established selection procedure. Any UMinho first year student can sign up for Peer Tutoring.

This project aims for the promotion of a proactive integration of all students in the University context, being this activity part of UMinho’s Diploma Supplement.
