The Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS) provides general, mental and oral health care services for students of universities and other institutions of higher education. Read more.
We are constantly developing our services on the basis of tools such as our online feedback system and our Facebook pages. Our staff also actively collect feedback about students´care experiences.
Diverse cooperation is the foundation of our activities. We work in close cooperation with partners including student organisations, universities and other health care organisations. Our close partners include the National Union of University Students, the Finnish Student Sports Federation, the Nyyti Student Support Centre and student unions.
In addition to providing care and advice, our most important task is health promotion at both the individual and community level. Our objective is to guide students towards a healthy lifestyle and encourage them to look after themselves. We also have a direct influence on studets´operating environments.
