Degree tutors are students studying in English degree programs. They are there to help the new international and Finnish degree students that study in the English degree programs.
It can be a bit of a culture shock to come to Finland and start a whole new life away from everything you know. That is where the tutors come in. They are the ones to show the new students around Lahti and the school and help with everyday things and to adapt to the Finnish culture. Tutors also help the students from all over the world to get to know each other and form a student group where they can support each other in the coming study years.
