Tutor Teaching

Tutor teacher's task is to guide and advise you especially with planning your studies, preparing your personal study plan, and evaluating the progress of your studies. All students have a personal tutor teacher appointed by the faculty.

General information

Together with your personal tutor teacher, you can plan your studies, prepare your personal study plan (PSP) and evaluate the progress of your studies. The tutor teacher will introduce to you your field of studies, occupational issues and important questions in working life. You will meet your tutor teacher either individually or in small groups. The tutor teacher follows the student's academic progress at least through the Bachelor's degree phase.

Please note, that advising for an individual course is provided by the course teachers.

If you don't know who your tutor teacher is, please contact Academic Affairs Service Team.
