A tutor is a person who guides and supports new students. The search for tutors begins at the end of the year and the tutors are selected in the beginning of the following year on the basis of interviews organized by the tutor coordinator. The selected tutors attend tutor-training and tutor camp. Tutoring begins in the fall and lasts for one academic year at a time. The tutors receive two study credits to free choice studies.


In addition to traditional tutoring it is possible to act as an international or marketing tutor. International tutor helps exchange students to adapt to Finland and Vaasa. International tutors get additional education in English. International tutors receive one study credit.

Marketing tutors gain great experience and skills that are surely appreciated by future employers. Marketing tutors receive compensation for their work from the Vaasa University of Applied Sciences.

In addition, as a tutor you will learn how to take others into account and how to take responsibility and last but not least, tutoring makes you feel good!
