Academic tutorials consist of tasks focused on guidance for activities and projects done by students, monitoring their progress and offering guidelines for improvement and assessment. The Master’s degree in Intervention and Mediation Concerning Minors in Situations of Vulnerability and/or Social Conflict will include two types of tutorials:
1st) Subject Tutorials: The lecuturers responsible for each subject will prepare these tutorials. They will focus on clearing up doubts or difficulties related to understanding the subjects, and completion of the required exercises for assessment. The main educational resource used for solving doubts raised by the students during class periods is the ALUD Platform. However, for doubts raised when completing exercises for assessment assigned by lecturers, a face to face tutorials calendar will be available. The dates for these meetings will be shown in the section entitled “Calendars and Timetables”.
2nd) MFP Tutorials: The faculty advisor assigned to each student to assist with preparation of the Master's Final Project will hold these tutorials. The schedules and calendars will be planned in advance with each advisor. Attendance to these tutorials is compulsory.
