Study support

Tutoring & Advising

From the moment you arrive on campus, you’ll have a personal Tutor, who will guide you until you’re ready to declare your major. Your first year is a necessary time of discovery and adaptation, and your tutor will support you in this transition. They will offer practical advice and help you create the context for progress. You can count on your tutor in your first year.

Once you declare your major, you’ll enter a more collaborative advising framework guided by a Departmental Advisor (DA). Your DA will inform you about courses and graduation requirements and will encourage a proactive approach to your studies. You’ll join Team Advising, which brings together students and DAs in a collaborative environment, creating a supportive platform to address academic challenges together. DAs hold weekly Open Hours, when you don’t need an appointment, to get additional support.
