What is orientation?

During the orientation, you will be introduced to Centria’s practices. You get to know your own degree programme and your study group. You will get useful information about the progress of your studies and study practices. 

Each group has a teacher tutor, who is the group’s closest guide and support at the start of the studies and throughout the studies. Each group also has student tutors who are Centria students and have themselves once been starting students. They understand the confusion experienced at the beginning about new things and want to be there for new students. Among other things, you will get to know these people and many other people from Centria during the orientation.
