The Tutorial Action Plan (PAT) of the IMYS is configured based on the characteristics of this interuniversity master's degree:
- A specialised high-level education that assumes the student is interested in the specialist subject matter of youth affairs.
- Offers 60 ECTS that is initially expected to be imparted in a single academic year, even though the student can decide to complete the course over two or three years.
- An interuniversity education at the one of the six participating public universities, with teaching staff from these six universities and classes alternating between these six universities.
These preliminary conditions led us to the definition of a PAT that provides for the monitoring of each student from time of pre-enrolment to the end of the process, when he/she presents the master's thesis. Over the course of the master's degree, the PAT seeks to assign an IMYS professor as a tutor who will assist the student with any queries and needs and monitor practical classes and the master’s thesis.
