The City of Helsinki offers Health Care Services also in English at Arcada University of Applied Sciences. Arcada offers students many opportunities for personal support. As a full-time student at Arcada you have access to school nurses. Here you can find more information about health care at Arcada.

In addition to the Health Care Services there is also a Study Counsellor / Special Education Teacher to help you with your studies. You also have the opportunity to meet with the student chaplain. Note that only registered full-time students are eligible to use health care services. Open YH students should turn to their own local Health Center (or alternatively occupational health care).

The school nurse is employed by the City of Helsinki and is sworn to honor professional secrecy. The visits are free of charge.

Starting 1 January 2021, the Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS) will provide student healthcare services for all higher education students. Read more here.
