Welcome to FSHS! Did you know that the FSHS is your support for well-being and health throughout your studies? We also take care of the well-being of study communities. You can use our services once you have registered yourself as attending in your studies. The healthcare fee for students in higher education, which is paid to Kela, covers all services at the FSHS (please remember to pay it to Kela on your own initiative and on time).

The health questionnaire for first-year students has been updated. The questionnaire┬┤s new name is the HealthStart. Students can fill in the HealthStart questionnaire on the Self online service and they receive immediate feedback on their state of health. First-year students will be sent a personal invitation to fill the HealthStart questionnaire if they have updated their contact information in Self online service.

Are you going abroad or for student exchange?If you are travelling far or leaving on a student exchange abroad etc., complete a pre-travel health survey on the Self online service as early as possible. By completing the survey at least 2 to 3 months before your trip, you will receive any prescriptions and begin any necessary vaccination programmes in time.

Week 6 is National Xylitol Week. Xylitol is a natural product, found naturally in plants such as fruit and berries. Taken after a meal, xylitol helps prevent acid attacks by reducing acidity caused in the mouth by food. During National Xylitol Week (from 7th February to 11th February), several FSHS service units will display xylitol-themed material. Also stay tuned to our social media channels.
