Tutor has a special meaning at University College Utrecht. Tutors combine aspects of the work of academic mentor (tutoren) and curriculum advisors (studieadviseurs). Like academic mentors elsewhere, tutors are scholars with an academic background that makes them well qualified to provide guidance to students making plans for their academic future and help them reflect on their performance and goals.
Like ‘curriculum advisors’, tutors have an understanding of specific programme requirements and special circumstances that can affect a student’s progress through the programme and can provide guidance and support accordingly.
In sum, our top priority is to guide you in making choices that are in line with University College Utrecht's rules and regulations and reflect your academic goals and personal aims and ambitions. Tutors counsel you about your academic options (including but not limited to the University College Utrecht curriculum), about determining priorities, and about keeping your performance in line with your goals. When necessary, tutors guide you with referrals to other experts at University College Utrecht or elsewhere.
