The application time for Helga’s peer and exchange tutor positions will open on Wednesday 1.2.2023. The application time is two weeks, until Tuesday 14.2.2023. Tutor interviews will start on 1 March 2023. Training day for the selected new tutors will be held 1 April 2023.

What does a tutor do?

The role of the tutor is to support the student’s integration into the Haaga-Helia student community, to facilitate the grouping process, to support the student in his/her studies and to refer the student to the services of the university. New students can turn to the peer tutors for all matters related to school and studies. In particular, blended student tutoring is constantly being developed.

Peer tutors are selected on the basis of an application and an interview. Criteria for comparison include teamwork skills, activity, management skills, persuasiveness, flexibility, argumentation and presentation skills. Tutor’s acting time is one (1) year.

Peer tutors

Peer tutors are the heroes who work the most with new students. Peer tutors participate already in the entrance exams to advise and cheer the applicants. At the start of the studies, peer tutors play a big role in grouping the students. Peer tutors act as real support and security for the freshers during the first school year.

Exchange tutors

Exchange tutors are the heroes of foreign exchange students. The tutors keep in touch with the incoming exchangers even before they come to Finland and are their support and security throughout the exchange. The heroes make sure the exchange students  feel comfortable and welcome.
