The aim of peer tutoring is to get new students to familiarize with the study environment, the practices of the Lapland UAS and student life. A student tutor usually has studied at least six months before becoming a tutor. Student tutors plan and implement activities and peer guidance for the student community. Activities can be implemented locally, virtually or something in between (hybrid). The goal of peer tutoring is to organize a variety of activities so all students can find friends and something nice to do on their free time. Whether it's for study, hobbies or even free time, you can always turn to your student tutor. At the Lapland University of Applied Sciences, the student union ROTKO is responsible for training student tutors. Tutor training is held once a year, during February-April. The student tutoring period is a minimum one academic year from August, ending in May of the following year. More information on student tutoring can be found from the ROTKO website.
