Abstract

The high number of irregular students is one of the most critical aspects in university careers. Currently, in Italy 40 students out of 100 complete their degrees after prescription time, with marked differences among the different areas. Several measures could be taken and a number of stakeholders should intervene. This paper analyses the results obtained through the intervention carried out on study groups supported by peer tutors at the Department of Political and Social Sciences (DISPeS) of the University of Calabria. This initiative highlights positive results in terms of soft skills acquisition and proactive attitude towards individual resources and limits.
