Guidance Corner will open on the third floor of Kaisa House in February

Guidance Corner for Helsinki University students will open on the third floor of Kaisa House in February 4th, 2019.

The Corner provides low threshold advice and guidance services for Helsinki university students on, for example, wellbeing, digital skills and job seeking – and even a weekly energising exercise break.

During the spring, the aim is to organise various theme days, e.g. student wellbeing and the promotion of study abilities. There will be also library-related themes. Stay tuned!

University of Helsinki research portal presents the results of research

Everybody can browse the information about the publications and research activities of the University of Helsinki researchers in a public portal. Through the research portal, one can get information about the experts, publications, projects and other activities of the multidisciplinary university. Several publications can also be read openly.

Members of the research community for example add their publications and fields of science annually. We recommend that researchers also connect their ORCID identifier to their TUHAT-profile (requires UH-user login). The research information must this year be added by the January 31. The University uses the system for the reporting to the Ministry of Education and Culture and uses the collected data for example in research evaluations.

Researcher, check from our video or from the guide how you add the information to the system.

You can also participate in our last TUHAT-clinic session at the Kaisa House January 24th, 14-16 o´clock.
