The problem of university dropouts is an endemic phenomenon in many countries.The research suggests that university failures are conditioned by a complex range of individual and institutional characteristics. Certainly, important aspects to consider are the decision-making processes that students put in place, the skills related to studying at the beginning of the study course and the characteristics of university services, including tutoring.To face the transition and the difficulties it entails, universities are required to organize educational orientation services for first year students, able to support them in the management of their learning processes.This paper illustrates a training model for peer tutors. The design is functional to provide tutors with skills to support students in their learning and to guide them to acquire self-regulated study skills, that research literature considered functional to academic success. The presentation of the tutors' training experience aims at offering a contribution in the construction of a model for university orientation.
