A student-centred operations model has been prepared in guidelines for study guidance at VAMK University of Applied Sciences. The guidelines comprise communications and guidance, basic counselling and extensive counselling. The communications and guidance are needs oriented – self-directed activity, largely based on electronic materials. Basic counselling consists of group mentoring that is a standard procedure at guidance adherent to all the degree programmes, and which includes among other things freshman interview and development discussions that the group mentors (teacher tutors) are responsible for. At group mentoring occasions, information is provided on international exchange, practical training and Bachelor’s thesis. Extensive needs related study guidance is mainly attended to by academic advisor, head of department and the supervisor of the thesis.
