Tutoring:

Our students are actively encouraged to achieve their study objectives and professional goals. Through the system of tutoring, we help them connect more closely with their studies, solve any issues connected with the studies, and tackle other, more general challenges. Our lecturers and assistants conduct introductory, subject-specific and individual tutoring, while student tutors (full-time and part-time senior students) are of great help to their younger colleagues at the start of their first academic year. Tutoring is regulated by the Tutoring System Regulations of the ABFHC.
ABFHC also provides a system of tutorship for foreign exchange students. This type of tutoring is offered by a group of lecturers and highly qualified experts who are responsible for overseeing international exchange. They include the Dean, the International Exchange Coordinator, the Vice-dean for Education, the Vice-dean for Research and Development, the Head of the Nursing Chair, the Coordinator for clinical training, the Coordinator of students and teachers tutors, and the ABFHC librarian. 

Facilities and equipment:
Lecture halls, laboratories, and rooms for clinical exercises at Angela Boškin Faculty of Health Care are modern equipped and contribute to a friendly studying environment. The library and the computer infrastructure provide students with all the necessary informational and technical support. The campus itself is also suited for various free time activities of both teachers and students, and is located in the immediate vicinity of the main clinical learning centre -
