Activities of Student Health Care 

The purpose of student health care is to maintain and promote students’ wellbeing by the following ways: 

  • Promoting healthy and safe learning environments and wellbeing in the learning community. 
  • Promoting and monitoring student’s health and ability to study. 
  • Providing healthcare services to students, including activities related to mental health and addictions, as well as promoting sexual health and oral health care. 
  • Identifying the need of students for special support or examinations at an early stage, supporting students and, if necessary, directing them to further examinations and treatment. 

Payment for non-cancelled or a late cancelled booking. If you are unable to come for a scheduled visit to the doctor, you must cancel your appointment no later than the previous working day. If you do not cancel your booking and fail to arrive, you will be charged a fee of EUR 51.50. The fee is charged to anyone over the age of 18. No fee will be charged if there is a valid reason for not cancelling the booked time.
