The health questionnaire for first-year students has been updated

The questionnaire´s new name is the HealthStart. Students can fill in the HealthStart questionnaire on the Self online service and they receive immediate feedback on their state of health. First-year students will be sent a personal invitation to fill the HealthStart questionnaire if they have updated their contact information in Self online service.

The students who began their studies in the spring of 2022 will not receive an invitation to fill the questionnaire until April.

Based on the answers, some of the students will be directed to the appointment. In this moment the information on appointment can only be promised after four weeks after you have completed the questionnaire. Student: Please wait for us to contact you!

Are you going abroad or for student exchange?

If you are travelling far or leaving on a student exchange abroad etc., complete a pre-travel health survey on the Self online service as early as possible. By completing the survey at least 2 to 3 months before your trip, you will receive any prescriptions and begin any necessary vaccination programmes in time.

Week 6 is National Xylitol Week

Xylitol is a natural product, found naturally in plants such as fruit and berries. Taken after a meal, xylitol helps prevent acid attacks by reducing acidity caused in the mouth by food. During National Xylitol Week (from 7th February to 11th February), several FSHS service units will display xylitol-themed material. Also stay tuned to our social media channels.
