Supporting your studies

University of Oulu offers many services in the degree programmes, faculties and at university level to support your studies. You can obtain guidance and support in the different stages and situations of your study path, for example, for planning the studies, the progress of the studies and time management, writing the thesis, internship, and when transferring to the working life.

In the questions related to your field of study and personal study plan (PSP) the guidance is offered primarily by the programme coordinator or tutor teacher in your study programme. All the Bachelor’s degree students and also students in some Master’s degree programmes have a designated personal tutor teacher who will guide and advice the student. Exchange students can seek assistance from their International Coordinator. If you need guidance regarding, for example, the degree structure, completing the degree, the recognition of prior learning, or international student exchange, faculty study affairs can also help you. Advising for an individual course is provided by the course teacher.
