Student tutors

What is a student tutor?

The International Office employs tutors (senior students) for each faculty. Their task is to acquaint new international students with the system of studies and campus life in Jyväskylä and to help them with practical questions, such as planning a timetable for studies and finding the way around the campus and the city centre. All the new students of the University of Jyväskylä get a tutor provided that they have applied to the University of Jyväskylä within the application deadlines. Student tutors are available for students arriving at the beginning of the semesters (September and January). Tutors will contact you latest three weeks before your recommended arrival date.
