As tutors, it is our job to help new
incoming students (both exchange and degree) with practical matters when
settling in. That includes assisting new students to adapt to the Finnish
culture, giving insights about how Finnish educational system works, sharing
our experiences about student life, familiarising them with UTU campus and,
most importantly, serving as a contact person whenever help may be needed
(especially during the first months). And the list goes on and on, depending on
how active you are and how much help your tutees may need.

Kalypso Filippou is originally from Cyprus and has
spent the past 7 years studying and working at the University of Turku. She
first moved to Finland back in 2012 to pursue a Master’s Degree in Education and Learning (previously known as Master’s Degree Programme in Learning,
Learning Environments and Educational Systems). Back then, she thought that she
will pursue and complete her studies in 2 years, and then she will return back
to her home country. Life, however, turned out quite differently! She has
recently graduated from the Doctoral Programme on Educational Policy, Lifelong
Learning and Comparative Education Research (also known as KEVEKO) and is now teaching at the
Faculty of Education.
