The tutor will help you with all the practical matters with your arrival, like checking in at the university or UAS and getting a starting package (if your student union has one) if you need one.
Although it varies depending on the university, the tutor should contact you about a month before your arrival at the latest, so keep an eye on your e-mail (and the spam folder!).
