Instructions for Students

The Instructions for Students tab contains a compilation of instructions related to our studies, general notifications and degree programme-specific information. The instructions site is available at guide.student.helsinki.fi.

You can also access the instructions without logging in. However, when logged in, you can automatically see the instructions and notifications related to your own study programme. If you wish, you can also choose another study programme and read its guidelines.

To make the most of the instructions pages:

  • Log in. After logging in, you will notice that your study programme is automatically selected.
  • You can look for guidelines either with the search function or under predefined themes. You can also try searching with only the beginning of the word.
  • In thematic boxes, you can find guidelines related to each theme. A guidelines document may appear under more than one theme.
  • You can arrange the themes as you wish by dragging them. If you are logged in, the order of the themes is saved for subsequent logins.
