The Studies service

The Studies service (studies.helsinki.fi) brings the most important tools, contents and services you need during your studies into one place.  Most parts of the Studies service can be used also without a user account and without logging in.

The front page of the service shows you current information about studies and read news published to the entire university community in the intranet, Flamma. When you log in, you can also view the bulletins of your own degree programme. In addition to the bulletins, the UniCafe lunch menus and events for students in the university’s calendar are shown on the front page. Make it a habit from the beginning of your studies to check the front page regularly to see what is going on at the university!

The service includes the My Studies page, Instructions for Students as well as Courses and Course pages. The Services and tools menu allows you to quickly access other university systems and services as well.

Instructions for students

The instructions for students contain information and instructions to support your studies, arranged under several themes. You will find instructions for, for example, completing your studies as well as information about student advice and well-being services. When you are logged in, you can also view the degree programme-specific details in addition to the general instructions. The start page of Instructions for Students also contains a compilation general notifications and degree programme-specific information.
