Tutor system that the University of Turku offers together with the Student Union is an excellent way for Finnish students to be part of international Turku. Tutors for exchange students are Finnish students who are interested in being international during their studies while staying in their own home campus. The application time takes place during early spring; the tutors are trained by the International Office and the Student Union in the end of spring. The tutors get the contact information about their tutees during summer and contact their international students before arrival.
Ever tutor has around 3-5 students to take care of. The most important is to be in Turku when the exchange student is arriving and help with practical matters during the first few days.
