We are looking for Student Tutors for the new students, who are entering the University of Turku in the beginning of the Academic year 2017-2018. You can apply during February 2017 by submitting the application of your Faculty, see the list on intranet.

Student tutor supports new students in the beginning of academic studies. Tutoring new international degree students gives you a chance to meet new friends from all over the world and improve your language skills. Tutors are rewarded with valuable experience, some credits and also financial compensation.

Take a look at the experiences of Student Tutors from previous years (partly in Finnish and partly in English)

Selection and training of student tutors

For successful tutoring you need to be motivated and responsible as well as have an inspiring attitude towards facilitating the small group of new students. Activity in e.g. student's organisations is also an asset as you support new students in their first steps as a university student.

You may apply in any phase of your studies, but it is good to assess your ability to commit to tutoring, starting with the tutor training.

Selected tutors will be informed as soon as possible and they are instructed in preparing the tutor agreement, which will be confirmed in the beginning of training.

In tutor training the tutors are provided with knowledge and skills that are needed in successful tutoring. Training day for student tutors is arranged in April 24, 2017.
