The cornerstone of guidance at UCU is the tutorial system. Students receive personal guidance from tutors assigned to them for the duration of the program. Tutors assist students with academic career guidance, including referral to other advisors. Beyond academic development per se, tutors provide a measure of pastoral care, including referral to external professional services when necessary.
Tutors are involved in the process whereby students select courses, compose majors and minors, and plan their future studies and careers. Together with their tutor, students reflect on their performance and on difficulties they may face in their academic work. Almost all tutors are also experienced teachers.
