The education psychologist works at the interface of educational advice and counselling and mental health work. The work of the educational psychologist focuses on supporting students in learning and in completing their studies and includes working with the individual, guiding study support groups as well as providing, for example, training relating to study skills.
If you are studying Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in University of Eastern Finland you can reserve an appointment from educational psychologist. At the appointment it is possible to discuss about difficulties related to studies. Common issues are for example troubles in time management or motivation, learning disabilities or how to cope with stress.
Discussion with educational psychologist are confidential and doesn’t cost you anything.
