In small groups of roughly 13 students, supervised and assisted by a tutor, you actively seek solutions to real-life problems. In this way, you learn not only to operate at an academic level, but also to work independently on real-world issues – just as you will later on, in your career.
Publication of the tutorial group schedule
Your timetable, including any tutorial group meetings, will be published on or before the UM-wide publication dates.
Switching tutorial groups
Switching of tutorial groups is not possible. In case of exceptional personal circumstances that merit an individual arrangement with regards to the times of tutorial groups you can contact the Student Advisors by email. They will decide whether you are eligible for such an individual arrangement. To combine two studies, adjustments can be made. Working next to your study is not considered as valid reasons in order to request an individual arrangement.
Tutorial rooms: available for groups
You can book a room for additional group meetings. See Room Reservation.
