    Learning to study

    If you feel like you can use a bit of tutoring, we can direct you to activities that suit you the most. You can join workshops, meet up with other students or arrange a personalised training session, just for you!

    Study Guidance tutors

    SG tutors are students from a higher year, carefully selected on the basis of their study results or after the involved professors and assistants suggested their names. The guidance by tutors has to be payed, with a maximum of 15 euros per hour. If you’re having financial difficulties and this is an obstacle to make use of tutoring? In that case you can contact our colleagues from Social legal & financial support.

    Honours program tutoring

    Honour tutors are selected through excellence programs from several faculties. Honour tutors choose to consciously incorporate tutoring within their own excellence program (and this is according to the sustainable humanistic vision of the VUB). They can also tutor VUB students from now on.

    This guidance is free of charge, but the number of available tutors is limited.

    Required prior knowledge

    At the start of a programme, you might realise that you lack some required prior knowledge to comprehend the matter. Don't worry - this often happens due to the differences between each faculty's study programme.

    A study advisor can help you fill in the gaps. Even if you notice that you need some background knowledge later in the academic year, you can contact your advisor for individual guidance. This way, you'll begin your study path well prepared.

    English tutoring

    Having difficulties talking or writing in English? Afraid of giving a presentation in this language? Worried that the idioms you used in your mail aren't correct? Or maybe you're anxious about the quality of your Bachelor's or Master's thesis.

    Contact the Study Guidance Meeting Point and you can get help from a trusted VUB student, who will act as a tutor for any of your English concerns.

    Other training sessions

    We look forward to helping you study, regardless of what problems you encounter. You can find out which type of tutoring can help you best at the Study Guidance Meeting Point.

    The guidance centre organises workshops and training sessions regarding several study skills, from learning to study independently to taking notes efficiently during classes. Find out if an upcoming workshop would suit your needs on our events page.

    Individual guidance is possible as well. You can contact our study advisors through the SG Meeting Point to arrange for personalised training.
