    Tutoring programs

    Participation in tutoring, mentoring and accompaniment Programs is rewarded with optional credits. These types of activities are known as experiences. The Student Support Services offers the option to participate in the following programs:

     Course Mate Program: this tutoring program among students can be carried out with both degree students and international students (Buddy Program). Participating as a course mate tutor comes with a recognition of three optional credits. Recognition of six optional credits will be given if the student is a course mate tutor for two or more years.

    Avanza Program: this tutoring program among students has the objective of supporting students who are struggling in some subjects. The work put in by a student who participates in Avanza as a course mate tutor will be rewarded with three optional credits.

    Mentoring Program for Secondary School Students. In this program, university students act as mentors to secondary school students. They offer them their help and inspiration while working on a social project as part of an international competition that aims to encourage technological vocations.

    Duplo Program of accompanying the elderly in care homes. This Program is organised by the Fundación Gregal, in accordance with a signed agreement with the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. Its purpose is to promote the coexistence of the elderly living in care homes with university students. Participation in this intergenerational program will be rewarded with three optional credits.
