Support and Study Guidance

The University of Vaasa offers students support in their studies and in other practical matters to ease the adaptation to the academic environment.

Students are welcome to ask for guidance from the study counsellors and the teaching staff.

Education Services assists students in adjusting to Vaasa, arranging practical matters and receiving general guidance.

In addition to programme-specific study guidance, all students can access centralised student services, which include the services of the Language Centre, Career Services and services related to student mobility and wellbeing.


Guidance via email

If you contact a teacher or other staff by email, please use your university email account for sending the message.

If you contact a teacher or other staff via email, it is good to keep in mind that the subject of your email should be clear and concise and describe the contents of your message. The message should contain a description of the problem or question, and indicate the course you are referring to if the question is related to your course. Please remember also to state your full name, student number, student status, and preferrably your study programme in the email.

Please be prepared to wait for an answer to your email for some days. The teachers and staff may have reserved certain days for going through their emails, and they may not be able to answer your immediately. Please be patient.

Email is a convenient and easy way to contact teachers and staff, but sometimes it is good to consider other methods for contacting them. Please also remember to check if the information you are looking for is available online at the university webpages before sending your question by email.
