The FSHS unit in Savonlinna is to close; services will no longer be provided in Pietarsaari


May 8, 2018

The FSHS unit in Savonlinna will close in June as the teacher training unit of the University of Eastern Finland moves to Joensuu. The unit will close on 15 June at 12 noon.

The FSHS has served students in Savonlinna for 45 years. Savonlinna first had a dedicated FSHS unit when the town still provided both teacher and translator training. In the mid-2000s, the Savonlinna unit merged its administrative functions with those at Joensuu. In recent years, the FSHS has served about 800 students in Savonlinna. In future, students will visit the Joensuu unit.

FSHS services will no longer be provided in Pietarsaari

The FSHS has provided outsourced student health services in Vaasa for about 180 kindergarten teaching students since the early 2000s. As Åbo Akademi’s kindergarten teacher training moves to Vaasa, the FSHS will no longer provide services in Pietarsaari from 31.5.2018 onwards. After this date services will be available at the Vaasa unit.
