WHO AM I?
Miran Murnik, 2nd year postgraduate student, majoring in Public Administration at the Faculty of State and European Studies. I have been a student at the aforementioned faculty since 2014, where I enrolled in undergraduate studies, majoring in Public Administration. Throughout all the years of study, I got to know the study process itself and the functioning of the faculty. At the aforementioned faculty, I was entrusted with the position of President of the Student Council, where I organize various projects and events.
WHICH TUTORIALS DO I PROVIDE? WHY TUTORING?
I provide introductory tutoring, where I provide students with information about subjects and exams and guide them with my knowledge so that they can complete their study obligations as easily as possible. I am also a tutor for support, connection and guidance, where I organize various social events at the faculty, but above all I am a link between students and faculty authorities. I decided to become a tutor because I want to pass on my knowledge and experience to students and thereby facilitate their studies. At the faculty, I already organize the traditional event “Druženje over New Year’s dinner with professors”, where in a relaxed atmosphere we get to know each other even better and make new friends.
HOW WILL I PERFORM TUTORING?
Every year at the faculty, at the beginning of the studies, I organize the event “Exchange of experiences, notes”, where students get information about individual courses and professors. If the students express a desire for an additional meeting, I will make arrangements with them individually.
In 2018, I completed my master’s degree at the Faculty of State and European Studies. I am currently a 3rd year PhD student in the International and Diplomatic Studies program.
