The Student Union together with its co-operators provides students services enhancing one’s health and well-being.
Health care for degree students
In Finland, the health care of university degree students is mainly delegated to Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS), all services are included in the fee collected by Kela. FSHS provides nutrition, mental- and oral health services. In addition, students are entitled to use the services provided by the health centers in their place of domicile. These usually come in handy when the local FSHS clinic is closed.
Health care for exchange students
