Health care for students

There are different health care services available for students in Finland. The services depend on whether you are a degree student, a double degree student or an exchange student, and where you come from (EU/EEA citizen or non-EU/EEA citizen).

Degree and double degree students

University students pursuing a bachelor's or master's degree in Finland are provided basic health care services by the Finnish Student Health Services (FSHS). In case of sudden illness requiring urgent treatment, you can also turn to municipal public health services or private health clinics.

Exchange students

Exchange students do not have access to Finnish Student Health Services (FSHS). Please see below what kind of health services are available.
