Boost to studies clinics

Do you feel that your studies are not progressing as quickly as you would like? Have you lost sight of the goal of your studies? Do you have problems with time management? Do you need help in finding your strengths and recognising your skills?

If you answered any of the above questions in the affirmative, Guidance Corner’s Boost to studies clinics may be just the thing for you! The material in the clinics is in Finnish and the work takes place in three languages (Finnish, Swedish and English) based on the needs of the participants, unless otherwise indicated in the clinic information.

Clinic themes:

Smart goals: Do you feel that your studies are not progressing as you would like? Have you lost sight of the goal of your studies? Come and clarify your goals and find a path to achieve them. The clinic uses the SMART criteria as support for the work.  

Studies as part of your career: Does the word ‘career’ sound distant and separate from your studies? Are you having a hard time finding your own strengths and recognizing your skills?  

Goal in mind, shaky time management: Do you have problems managing your use of time even though you know the goal of your studies? Do you

Boost to studies: A combination of the Smart goals and Studies as part of your career clinics. The group will convene twice. 

Registration for the clinics starts on 5 August 2019. A maximum of 15 students will be admitted to the clinics and they will be organised if there are at least three registered participants. Registration and the dates of the clinics.

Please note that the clinics do not provide degree programme or faculty-specific study guidance. If you need help, for example, in determining what studies are missing from your degree, you can find the contact information for your faculty’s Student Services here.

The clinics are run in collaboration by Career Services and Guidance Coordination Services.
