Use the right channel
As a Diak’s student you have access to several different communication channels. Here are some instructions on what kind of information you can find on different channels. We also go through some ground rules on how to choose the right channel.
Diak’s multiple communication channels might seem like a lot. However, each of the channels has its own purpose. By choosing the right channel you can make sure to get an answer as fast and as smoothly as possible.
Using Diak’s e-mail
Diak’s personnel use an e-mail address with an ending @diak.fi and students with an ending @student.diak.fi. Remember to use your student e-mail when taking care of things related to studying. It is handy to have all e-mails related to Diak on your student e-mail instead of your personal e-mail. You should follow your Diak e-mail regularly so you will get all the important information.
Before e-mailing teachers about information related to a specific course, you should check if you can find the same information on Diakle. If you have questions about how to complete a certain course, please write it on the Diakle page instead of e-mailing it: someone else might be thinking about the same question!
Student support and services’ contact information
From the Support and services page you can find contact information to all our student services. Here are some of the most important ones:
- Study offices: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for exchange students (registration for the academic year and enrolment for study modules, study entitlement, diplomas and diploma attachments, transcripts of records)
