Support and monitoring


The objective of the plan is to receive and guide Public University of Navarre (UPNA) students through personal support and monitoring by tutors from initial entry until completion of their studies, aiming to make full use of the personal tutors’ educational experience.

In order to help students adapt to university life, the Public University of Navarre provides them with a personal support and monitoring system which focuses on their academic development and offers professional guidance regarding continuing their studies or entering the job market. Students also receive tutoring support regarding specific subjects from the teaching staff in charge of each module throughout the course.

The Faculties and Schools, in coordination with the Vice-rector of Students’ Office and the Student, Academic Support and Communication services, hold a welcoming session for new students on the first teaching day of each new academic year.

At the session, students are informed about their course, the organisation and governance of the University, student representation, student life, the services available to students (particularly the Guidance service, provided through the University’s Tutorship plan), their programme, safety rules, administrative procedures, academic regulations and resources available through the University website.

In application of the Public University of Navarre Tutorship Plan, each student is assigned a Professor as his/her Personal Tutor. This tutor accompanies him/her throughout his/her time at the University unless one of the two parties expressly requests otherwise.
