New students

Tervehdys, uusi opiskelija – Taideyliopiston ylioppilaskunta (TaiYo) toivottaa sinut tervetulleeksi opiskelemaan Taideyliopistoon! Vuoden 2021 tiedot päivitetään tälle sivulle kesän aikana.

 

Jokaisessa suomalaisessa yliopistossa on oma ylioppilaskuntansa, ja TaiYo on kaikkien Taideyliopiston opiskelijoiden yhteisö sekä etu- ja palvelujärjestö. Läsnäolevana perustutkinto-opiskelijana eli kandidaatin tai maisterin tutkintoa suorittavana opiskelijana kuulut automaattisesti ylioppilaskuntaan, minkä lisäksi mm. vaihto-opiskelijat ja tohtorin tutkintoa suorittavat voivat halutessaan liittyä ylioppilaskunnan jäseneksi. TaiYo:n tehtävänä on toimia jäsentensä yhdyssiteenä, huolehtia opiskelijoiden eduista ja oikeuksista sekä tarjota opiskelua helpottavia palveluja.

Before starting your studies, also read ArtSU’s Guide for new students!The guide is an extensive information package on the University of the Arts Helsinki, its practices, the daily life of students and the Student Union. The paper version of the Guide for new students is handed out during the orientation studies, and electronic versions of the guide are available from the links below.

Checklist for new students

It is more comfortable to start your studies when you have first taken care of a few practical things. More precise and comprehensive information on practical things related to the start of studies can be found in the above Guide for New Students, but here is a list of a few of the most essential things:

Tutoring

Together with the University of the Arts Helsinki, ArtSU organises tutoring activity to facilitate the beginning of your studies.

Every new student belongs to a tutoring group led by a tutor, an older student who helps and supports new students in the early phase of their studies. You can ask the tutor about anything from daily life in Helsinki (where is the nearest pharmacy?) to the practices of your academy (how do I sign up for courses?).

The primary task of a tutor trained by ArtSU is to help the new student to cope with practical things. The responsibility for student counselling lies with the academy, the subject and the teacher tutors, but student tutors will naturally answer all questions related to studies to the best of their ability.

ArtSU’s tutoring activities are led by the tutor coordinator hired separately each year. In 2020, the coordinator is Hannu Jaakkola (taiyo (at) uniarts.fi). More information on tutoring and acting as a tutor is available from the Student Union office.
