Apply to become a tutor for 2019!


As a tutor, you play a key role in welcoming new students to the university and ensuring they develop a strong commitment to the university community and their studies. As a tutor, you will act as a group leader and you will be part of the university’s guidance and counselling system along with university personnel. Tutors receive a small financial compensation for their service.

First-time tutors also receive academic credits for their initial training.

The ideal tutor is an enthusiastic, responsible and enterprising student with an interest in leadership. A tutor should be familiar with the general way things work at the university. However, you don’t have to know everything before you begin — the faculties provide training for all new tutors.

The application period for August 2019 tutoring is open until 12.2.2019 (3 pm). Apply to become a tutor through the Aava application system.
