The tutoring is a success support system set up by the University of Montpellier for students.

Free of charge, tutoring is an academic and moral support for students throughout the year. A real synergy between students and teachers, it allows students to put their knowledge into practice through sessions organized by tutors.

The tutors are students of higher education, in training (trainee tutors) or having validated a specific training of "Qualification to the functions of tutor" (qualified tutors).

For students, by students, supervised by teachers, tutoring takes many forms:

  • The disciplinary tutoring concerns the teaching of the institution's training areas. The sessions are presented in the form of exercises in exam conditions, such as mock exams for PACES students, and writing of commentaries on judgments or practical cases for the law tutoring.
  • The documentary tutoring contributes to the training of students in documentary research and in the use of digital tools intended to access and exploit resources useful to their academic career.
  • The disability tutoring consists of personalized support for PASS students recognized as having a disability by adapting teaching methods.
  • Tutoring in the framework of adapted courses concerns students registered in the "yes if" success scheme. This form of tutoring focuses on work methodology and pedagogical support.

Would you like to participate in tutoring sessions?

To do so, you must be registered at the University of Montpellier in initial training. You will find all the information about the tutoring sessions in your faculty, school or institute.

Would you like to become a tutor?

If you are registered at the University of Montpellier for a national degree, you can apply to the tutor in charge. To do so, you will have to provide a letter of motivation, a curriculum vitae and specify the type of tutoring you wish to do. You may be asked to attend an interview.

If your application is approved, you will have to register as a trainee tutor for the "Training for the functions of a Qualified Tutor" option within the framework of the validation of a UE or the University Diploma "Training for the functions of a Qualified Tutor". You will then benefit from a training course and will carry out an internship.
