The UP Faculty of Health Sciences HELP Office invites applications for the HELPer programme at the Pécs campus.

The aim of the programme is for students to support and help each other in an organised format


HELPers are students who have mastered the course material to a high level, understand it, love it and are able to explain it to their peers.

  • Identify problems (e.g. life management, mental health, stress, non-academic issues) and refer them to an appropriate support person.

The HELPers undertake to participate in a 2-day training course organised by the HELP Office in September 2024, which will develop the competences and skills needed to perform the task.

HELPers receive the contact details of students applying for tutoring via the HELP Office.

The HELPer keeps a short progress diary of the tasks carried out with the student who has applied for tutoring, which is submitted to the HELP Office at the end of each month for approval.

The HELP Office will start the payment of the fee based on the number of sessions held.
