Wellbeing tutoring is peer guidance for students to provide each other guidance and help, and it is available for all students of the University of Oulu. Students are able to do physical activity, improve their knowledge and skills, and experience culture. The activities are organised according to students’ interests, so we are happy to receive suggestions! Tutoring enables you to get to know new people, learn new skills. and find a long-term hobby according to your preferences.
In culture tutoring, visits to, e.g., museums, concerts and theatres have been organised. Skill and knowledge tutoring can consist of, e.g., studying the Finnish language, improving study skills, cooking and getting to know different cultures together, and creating art and music. In sports tutoring you can try out different sports, such as kyykkä and volleyball, and participate in regular football games.
Most tutoring is completely free of charge for students. In activities subject to a fee, we have typically been able to negotiate discounts and other benefits, such as guided tours behind the scenes and special opening hours, with collaborators.
Wellbeing tutoring is a project that started in 2021 and is funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture. The aim is to lower the threshold for students to find preferable free time activities and hobbies. The project is overseen by the Wellbeing coordinator at the OYY office, and the tutoring is carried out by trained wellbeing tutors.
