Tutoring is organised help provided for students.

Tutoring is organised help provided for students. We would like to make inclusion into the university environment easier for new students, provide counselling, and help with study and other issues new students might encounter. Consequently, every freshman is provided with a tutor.

Tutoring System at the Faculty of Arts

Since there are more than 150 active tutors at the Faculty of Arts, we require coordinators to efficiently run the programme. Each department has its own departmental coordinator for tutors-students, whose job is also to oversee tutors' work. 

The following positions are active at the Faculty level: 

  • Coordinator for Tutors-Students:Anika Logar 
  • Tutor Coordinator for Students with Special Needs: Jerica Peric
  • Tutor Coordinator for Foreign Students: Sara Ivanovska
  • Coordinator for Tutors-Teachers: doc. dr. Katja Mahnič

The Purpose of Tutoring 

The aim of the tutoring system at the Faculty of Arts is to create conditions for: 

  • organised care for the development of each individual student from enrolment through completion of study;  
  • strengthening direct contact between students and teachers, and among students, teachers, and the Faculty of Arts as a whole;  
  • the more successful integration of students into the university environment;  
  • solving general and specific student problems, especially for those with special needs;  
  • an improved success rate during studies, better student mobility, and higher quality of study.

Tutors for Foreign Students

The tutors are Slovene students interested in foreign cultures and languages who volunteer to help out exchange students while they are studying at our faculty. 

Tutors are expected to do the following:

  • welcome exchange students upon their arrival
  • aid in finding accommodation
  • help with the application procedure
  • introduce exchange students to student life in Slovenia
  • assist exchange students in becoming acquainted with the department and faculty.

The tutors also organize various social events and a one day trip to different parts of Slovenia each semester.

All exchange students nominated to study at the Faculty of Arts will be contacted by the tutor assigned to them (contact will be initiated via the email address stated in the Application Form). If you do not wish to have a tutor, please let him or her know and keep in mind that they are expecting a reply from you in any case. Please take into consideration that your tutor is also a student, has limited or no use of a car, and has exams and other obligations of their own, so they might not always be available to pick you up or meet with you when you wish. They will, however, do their best to make your exchange in Slovenia as pleasant as possible.

You are welcome to join our Facebook group!

If you are not contacted by a tutor at least one week prior to your arrival, please send an email to Sara Ivanovska.

EVERY higher education teacher (member of teaching staff) is a TUTOR-TEACHER.

Coordinators of teachers:

Teacher tutoring is a form of tutoring in which higher education teachers and other employees advise students about their studies, the selection of their educational path and other studies-related questions.

Teacher tutoring has been implemented in a fully formalised manner only in certain departments, but each department has a department coordinator who serves as an additional link between the department head and the students. Professors perform many tutoring activities as part of their teaching obligations, especially practical classes and seminars.

Tutors have the option of claiming 3 ECTS for their tutoring in the form of the Student Tutoring external optional course.

Department coordinators can claim 3 ECTS for their tutoring in the form of the Coordination of Student Tutoring external optional course.

Tutors-students can take both external optional courses only once during both study cycles (either in the first or the second cycle).

WARNING: selecting the external optional courses Student Tutoring (3 ECTS) and Coordination of Student Tutoring (3 ECTS) and claiming the corresponding credits is only possible when applying for the call for tutors.

The following persons are involved in the tutoring process:

Tutor – provides guidance and additional information, assists in acquiring information and skills, motivates, directs and, by example, contributes to a student’s personal and academic development. Both students and teachers can be tutors.

Student – recipient of the assistance, advice.

Coordinator of tutors – professional, research or teaching staff member of a UL member institution, or a student.

The main tasks of a tutor-student:

  • advising students about studies-related and other themes and situations;
  • familiarising students with their rights and duties;
  • familiarising students with the procedures and rules for the operation of the member institution, its student council and other forms of students’ organisations and life (Pravila sistema tutorstva Univerze v Ljubljani [Rules of the University of Ljubljana’s Tutoring System], 2015).

The aim of student tutoring is to provide appropriate support to students in their studies. Tutors assist students in assimilating subject matter and with other problems that a student might encounter during their studies and that could affect their performance.

The main tasks of a tutor-teacher:

  • advising students about their studies, choice of courses, continuing their educational path and career opportunities;
  • assisting in solving studies-related or other problems arising during their studies.

What a tutor does NOT do:

  •  they do not look for information instead of the student, rather only giving them directions;
  •  they do not give advice on cheating in exams;
  •  they do not comment on or gossip about professors, the evaluation policy, teaching methods or study assignments;
  •  they do not write seminar papers, reports, notes etc. instead of the student;
  • they do not provide the student with notes, seminar papers, reports etc.

Laufam svoj lajf v FFantastični družbi


"FF stopnice se do vseh vedejo enako in jim je vseeno, ali ta, ki po njih teče, to počne hitro, z nogami,  je drugačne barve polti ali spolne usmerjenosti, kakršen koli. 
Film prikazuje osebe, ki jim je družba vsilila različne slabšalne oznake. Tekmovalci se predstavijo, sodelujejo v tekmovanju in na koncu zavržejo oznake, ki jim jih pripisuje družba. 
Na ta način film prikazuje absurd družbenega etiketiranja in primika svojo skodelico k spodbujanju strpnosti, razmisleku o smiselnosti označevanja ter ponudi iskren in unikaten vpogled v svet raznolikosti."
