Feeling down?

It can be quite challenging to study in new surroundings and in a foreign language. Please be patient and do your best, but also don’t forget to relax. Remember your own ways of reducing stress. Do not be too hard on yourself. Keep in mind that you can always talk about your problems, whether big or small, with your fellow students, with the university staff or with the Finnish Student Health Service.

In all kinds of problems with your studies, there are plenty of people to turn to. Please do not hesitate to contact:
