International students (exchange and degree students) are provided with a personal tutor. Tutors are trained students who volunteer to help and guide new international students. Tutoring is organised by the University of Turku and TYY. Tutors help their students with everyday practicalities during the first weeks and guide them through student life in Turku. The tutor will help you with housing matters, registering at the university, handling the first stage payments in the bank office etc.

Please note, however, that your tutor is also a student and not your academic contact person. Each department at the University has a member of staff appointed for that task. The name of your academic contact person can be found in your acceptance letter.
