Advising and guidance

Advising/guidance refers to all activities aimed at enabling the future first-year student or current student to plan and manage their learning in a manner consistent with personal life goals and making full use of individual skills and interests in order to achieve personal fulfilment.
Depending on the moment in the university course when these activities are implemented, a distinction is made between: advising/guidance carried out before choosing a degree course, it is aimed at prospective first-year students and offers support in identifying the course to be undertaken on the basis of individual interests, expectations and aptitudes. In this phase, the various possible scenarios are presented to the future first-year student and the alternatives of the university pathway are illustrated; advising/guidance carried out during the university career, aimed at enrolled students and designed to guide them within the degree courses already undertaken, enabling them to establish a better interaction with the structures and the university context; advising/guidance carried out close to or after graduation, aimed at graduates or graduating students and aims to facilitate their introduction into the working environment.
