Orientation Days at LUT Orientation Days at LUT

For all the new students beginning their studies in LUT a joint orientation will be organised. Participating in the orientation is definitely worth it, as it is a good way to ensure a smooth start for the studies.

Just before the beginning of the actual subject studies, a joint orientation will be organised for all the students beginning their studies at LUT. The orientation will be organised both in August/September and in January during the previous week before the start of the actual subject studies.

Important information about the beginning of the studies, the university as a community, student community, the support services and the study location, Lappeenranta, will be offered during the orientation. International students also receive basic information about the Finnish society, culture and life in Finland.

Participation to the orientation takes place under the guidance of you appointed tutor (read more about peer tutoring). Tutor plays an important role in helping new students get assimilated into the the university system.

If you have questions regarding the orientation you can contact tutoring secretary Katri Kankaanpää (email: tuutorointisihteeri(at)lut.fi) or Tanja Karppinen (email: tanja.karppinen(at)lut.fi).
