Hello, and a warm welcome to Tampere University!
We are Otto and Jasper, tutors for your first year in Hervanta. Our job is to make sure that you have the best start possible in your studies. New people, new places, and a unique student culture may all come as a bit of a shock to you. Do not worry though, we know how it feels and are here to get you through it as smoothly as possible.
Jasper is starting his second year in the international Science and Engineering program. Physics and ICT are his favorite parts, and mathematics is just part of it. He is half Finnish, half German, and has lived outside of Finland for 5 years. With most of his previous education being in English, the international program was a natural choice. Outside of lectures and weekly exercises, he mainly enjoys a variety of videogames and spending time with friends.
Otto is 20 years old and he is also fully Finnish but just moved last year to Tampere to study ICT major. He has used English a lot in his life and therefore he decided to study in English which then has brought its own problems, having previously studied in Finnish. Otto is really chill and easy to approach and he loves arts and in his free time, he does music and photoshop when there is time besides the studies and inspiration. One could say he’s also kinda music and game geek so if you need new songs to your playlist or new games to play, he got ya!
If you have anything to ask, do not hesitate to get in contact. We are always happy to help. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
