Visit the campus-specific pages to find out more about the services.

Student health care

The purpose of the student health care services is to promote students’ health, well-being and capacity to study, and manage a healthy study environment.

The local authority’s health and social service division is responsible for student health care provision.

The service is available for degree students.


Students who are exposed to risk of contagion in their clinical placements will get the hepatitis B vaccine free of charge.

It is available to students of the public health nurse, registered nurse and midwife degree programmes. Students in Bachelor of Social Services programmes may get a free hepatitis B vaccination if their work placement involves a risk of contagion and the vaccination is required by the organisation in question.

Contact the student health nurse of your campus to get a vaccination.
