Tutorial Plan (PATT)


The Tutorial Plan (PATT) of our Faculty is configured as a set of advisory and personalized tutoring activities aimed at the new students of the first year, so that they can organize their studies well, develop in the University in an autonomous way, to settle in their new environment and, finally, to take advantage of the possibilities that the University offers them. You can find more information in the following informative leaflet.
The COE also plans to extend the PATT for the other courses, adapting it to the different needs that are presented to the student throughout the career until graduating as a graduate in the labor market and even later, enriching the contribution that the University gives to the Society.

    To resolve any doubts about the PATT, it is advisable to contact the PATT Coordinator at the Faculty. At present, the PATT Coordinator is Professor Dª. Soledad Ruano López, Deputy Dean of Institutional Relations and Alumni .

      The PATT is organized around a series of general briefings and individual follow-up sessions with the assigned tutor that are developed throughout the course, which provide documents, guidelines and information on the operation of the University and the Faculty. There are three types of sessions:


      • Large group sessions (GG). They are imparted jointly to all the students enrolled in the Plan, and are essentially informative sessions.
      • Small group sessions (GR). Training or follow-up sessions held by each tutor with his group of tutored students.
      • Individual sessions. They are made on demand of a student to deal with a specific issue or problem that require personalized attention.


      3. Is it compulsory to attend all activities?

      The enrollment in the PATT entails a series of commitments on the part of the students: they must attend at least 80% of the sessions held (including those of large group and small group). Justified faults should be properly documented. In this way they can obtain the corresponding certificate of participation in the PATT (valued in 2 ECTS credits).

      It is necessary to attend and participate actively in the sessions held (at least 80% of them) and to take advantage of the meetings completing the sheets, performing the tasks required and following the guidelines that the tutor marks in each session.

In this way, it enriches the contribution made by the University to society.
