Tutoresport-UAB is an academic support and mentoring program aimed at athletes studying at the UAB. The UAB gives them the possibility of combining their academic and sports activities, with the active collaboration of a tutor, a lecturer at the Faculty or University School in which they study. They are granted six elective credits during the academic itinerary, which allow them to train on the same campus and actively participate in competitions representing the UAB in the championships of Catalonia and Spain.
Tutoresport-UAB was the first program of this type in Spain and started in the 1996/1997 academic year.
Tutoresport-UAB Program depends academically on the Vice-Rector's Office for Academic Programming and Quality and is managed by the UAB Physical Activity Service. As of today, more than 600 athletes have been supported by the program.
