Survey for students on life during the pandemic
ESU, together with the Institute of Development of Education in Croatia and an interdisciplinary team of researchers based at the University of Zadar in Croatia are carrying out this survey on student life during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The deadline is April 30th.
Overpaid student financial aid
Student! If you have earned more than allowed by the income limits for student financial aid last year, you still have time to pay back the overpaid student financial aid.
You can pay back the overpaid student financial aid until the end of April. When you voluntarily repay the extra aid…
- You regain the months for student financial aid otherwise lost.
- You don’t have to pay the extra charge of 7.5%.
Student healthcare services for students in higher education starting 1 January 2021Starting 1 January 2021, the Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS) will provide student healthcare services for all higher education students. A healthcare fee for higher educationstudents is paid to Kela.
Students who are entitled to use the services of FSHS are students who have registered as attending and who are completing a bachelor’s or master’s level degree earned in a university of applied sciences, or a bachelor’s or master’s level university degree.
Exchange students, students in open university and students in tailor-made, customer-specific training programmes are not entitled to use the services of FSHS
Starting in 2021, students who are entitled to use the services of FSHS will pay a healthcare fee to Kela. No bill will be sent on the healthcare fee, and thus the student has to pay the fee on his or her own initiative. Kela will begin to collect the healthcare fee in the spring term of 2021. The healthcare fee can be paid via Kela’s e-service starting in December 2020. University students pay the healthcare fee for the autumn term 2020 to their student union. Up-to-date information on the healthcare fee for higher education students and payment of the fee is available on Kela’s website.
