More about the specific responsibilities can be found below.


Master’s tutor

Although new master’s students have studied somewhere else before, they need tutors to help them integrate into our community. Some international students need tutors to help them integrate into a foreign country and culture as well. Master’s students have larger tutor groups, and there might be more than one tutor per group because the groups are divided based on the study programmes of the arriving master’s students. Master’s tutoring requires less time than bachelor’s or exchange tutoring, and is more about peer tutoring and making new friends as master’s tutors probably meet their marsus in mutual classes.

Note that even if you are a third-year student and finishing your bachelor studies this spring, you can still apply to be a master’s tutor!

Exchange tutor

Every semester over a hundred foreign students arrive on exchange to Aalto BIZ, and they need help and guidance. Activities for exchange students tend to be eventful, and through exchange tutoring you will get the opportunity to see Finland from the perspective of an exchange student, which is very eye-opening and amazing. Exchange tutors meet up with the arriving exchange students at the airport when they arrive (this year depending on the pandemic situation) and help them with practical matters and with the integration into a foreign country and culture. Exchange tutors are encouraged to continue tutoring in January when Aalto BIZ welcomes new exchange students again.

Bachelor’s tutor

Tutor is the first contact for new mursus when they start studying and living a student life. Tutor is a guide and inspiration for mursus, and the task is both challenging and rewarding. Surely everyone remembers their own tutor and first days at Aalto BIZ - why not do the same for the new students and experience it all again from a tutor's perspective?

Open Uni tutor

Open Uni tutors are mainly the same as bachelor’s tutors, but they have a large group of Open Uni mursus that they tutor together. Open Uni mursus have carried out their first-year studies at open university, and they have received their student place based on their study success. Requirements for Open Uni tutor are the same as for bachelor’s tutor, though knowledge and experience of open university is an advantage!

Economics tutor

Economics’ tutors have the important job of supporting the new Economics mursus with the program as well as integrating them into the BIZ community. There might be international students among these mursus and hence tutoring will be done in English. All the Economics’ tutors are Bachelor’s tutors and will have the same trainings as others as well as AYY’s training for international tutors. We are primarily looking for applicants from the Economics line or with economics as their major.
