Peer-tutors: are students who formally declared their own disponibility to be at your side during your study career. A special commission chaired by the Delegate of the Rector examines each request to became a tutor, examinations, curriculum vitae, and announces the final classification. Tutors have to follow a training and are recognized by a Rector’s decree. Their task is just that of following you in the classroom, taking notes for you during lessons, helping you build relations with professors and other students. They get paid 200 hours a month
