You can use FSHS services if you are studying for a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree at a university or other institution of higher education and you have paid your student union membership fee.

You can use FSHS services as long as you are an enrolled student and your student union membership is valid:

  • If you have paid your student union membership fee for the full academic year, your right to use FSHS services starts on 1 August and ends on 31 July the following year.
  • Autumn term membership starts on 1 August and ends on 31 December.
  • Spring term membership starts on 1 January and ends on 31 July.

You can use FSHS services if you have registered as an attending student and paid the student union membership fee. Paying this fee is also required for using the Self online service.

The healthcare fee is €57 and it is covered by the student union membership fee – you don’t need to pay it separately.

Please note that your student union membership fee must be paid before you can use our services. Even if your membership fee is not yet due, you can only use our services after the payment confirmation has been sent to the FSHS. This may take 3 to 7 weekdays.

Be prepared to prove that your student union membership is valid with either a valid student card, a certificate of student status from your university, or with a receipt for payment of the student union membership fee.

Your primary FSHS unit is the one in your study town. When booking an appointment contact us either through Self or by calling our service numbers. If necessary, you’ll be permitted to book an appointment for an FSHS unit in another town.

You can use FSHS branch units if you are studying for a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree at a branch unit of a university or other institution of higher education within the scope of the FSHS’s services. A student studying at a branch unit can be referred for treatment to another town if the branch unit doesn’t provide the necessary services. In this case, travel expenses will be reimbursed according to the cheapest student ticket available. 

To obtain travel compensation, submit a claim within two months after travelling. You will get advice on how to make the travel expenses claim when booking the appointment. Travel expenses will not be paid if you seek treatment at other units independently.

If you have registered as an attending student at a Finnish university during your exchange studies and have paid the student union membership fee, you can use our services also during the exchange. Please remember the available remote consultations, in particular. By using them you can take care of your health issues also abroad.

If you’re an international student and studying for a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree at a Finnish university or other institution of higher education, or if you are on a student exchange in Finland as part of your international Bachelor’s or Master’s degree studies, you can use our services once you have paid the student union membership fee.

You can use our services during your work placement if you have registered as an attending student at your university and paid the student union membership fee.
