University policies and procedures apply to many aspects of your role as a tutor.

The UQ Policy and Procedures Library (PPL), the central UQ repository for approved policies, procedures, guidelines and forms. The PPL contains policy and related documents on topics relevant to students, staff and the UQ community on a variety of management, administrative, academic, personnel, technical and physical facilities issues which have been approved by the Senate for University-wide application.

To view the policies in PPL, please select from this list of the key policy areas most relevant to tutors:

School guidelines
Schools may have their own guidelines for tutors, and you should consult your school for details.

  • Private tutoring: You should be aware of the issue of private tutoring, whether for students in residential colleges or outside colleges. Some schools provide guidance on this topic, stating that it is not considered appropriate for a tutor in a course to provide additional private tutoring (paid or unpaid) to students within the same course, whether or not the students are in the tutor’s group. [Students finding the tutorials or consultation times inadequate for their needs, can seek additional private tutoring, but not by a tutor in the same course.]
