Student health care services are arranged by the City of Rovaniemi. University of Applied Sciences students’ health care office is located in the city, address: Pohjolankatu 2, 96100 Rovaniemi (map).
You can visit the health care nurse whenever you need help in matters related to your health and wellness or if you become ill. The health care nurse also conducts health examinations when needed and advises patients to visit a specialist, if necessary. Student health care also includes matters related to contraception, vaccinations and health advice related to travel. You can also visit the health care nurse to discuss mental health or substance abuse issues.
Student health care services include visits to the health care nurse, online visits and visits to the doctor. Doctor’s services are also provided by the health care centre’s health care teams. Emergency and first aid services are available at Lapland Central Hospital. Dental services are arranged by the City of Rovaniemi.
Visits to the health care nurse are free of charge. A health care centre fee is charged for visits to the doctor to treat an illness.
The goal is to view healthy habits of life as a positive resource in the everyday life of the student.
A foreign student who comes to Finland to study for at least two years is usually given a municipality of domicile in Finland and is thereby eligible to receive municipal health care services. Such a student should present proof of estimated study time to the Registry Office (certificate from Lapland UAS).
This information is needed to determine the foreign student’s municipality of domicile. If the municipality of domicile is Rovaniemi, the same health care centre services and fees apply to the student as to other residents of the municipality:
Health care centre annual fee: 27.40 €
Visit to the doctor: 13.70 €
Emergency clinic fee, 20:00-22:00 on weekdays and 8:00-22:00 on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays: 18.80 €
Night time emergency clinic fee, 22:00-8:00: 27.40 € per visit
Uncancelled appointment: 33.80 €
