Nyyti News 6/2022

Nyyti vinkkaa - Nyyti News
The sun warms the mind and hopefully the graduation days of many students as well. Many educational institutions have already celebrated or will celebrate the completion of students' studies in the spring of 2022.

-University students graduate to very different realities: some have a significant number of life knocks and years of mental strain, social difficulties and / or lack of supportive relationships, writes Annina Vilkas (@iamvilkas), Curator of Studies at Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK), in her Instagram story and post on 27 May 2022.

The media glorifies top graduates. As Vilkas writes, there are other types of top performance that also deserve annealing. According to Vilkas, the headlines about these top performances could be e.g.

  • The student completed half as many credits in the spring semester as in the fall semester, even though one encountered serious mental health problems at the same time
  • Diagnosis of ADHD, medication, and Kela's Oma Väylä rehabilitation came into play: The student promoted ones thesis and continues to study within the statutory overtime
  • The challenges of coping slowed down studies and the motivation to study was lost from time to time, but the student passed most of the courses planned for the spring, and lightened studies continue at ones pace in the autumn
  • The student surprised others and oneself: OCD and social anxiety were close to preventing one from continuing ones studies, but now studies continue with discretionary overtime

All students with their own top performers deserve glow and congratulations. It is especially important that we also remember to glow and congratulate those students whose achievements are backed by a tremendous amount of effort. They do hundreds of times more work!

-A grade or a certain number of credits does not determine anyone's value as a student or a person, writes Vilkas - and so it really is!

We congratulate every student on their own top performance!
