Student support and wellbeing

At LUT university we want you to feel good and have energy for both studying and enjoying other areas of your life. That is why we offer a wide range of support services: you can get active with MOVEO, talk about small and big issues with the campus chaplains, get support for learning difficulties and discuss your own well-being and study methods with the study psychologists. The Finnish Student Healthcare Services (FSHS) and local health care centers help you with health issues.

Study ability means the student’s working ability and it is a super important thing. There are 4 main areas that affect your ability to study: personal resources, study skills, study environment and teaching. If you experience issues with any of these, feel free to contact us in the support and well-being services.
