Problems with studies? Come visit HYY’s legal protection clinic!
Are you wondering what rights you have at the University, or have you experienced flaws when completing courses? Have unreasonable obstacles emerged to hinder your study progress, or have you felt a grade you received was unfair?
In the legal protection clinic, HYY’s specialist will advise you on legal protection issues related to studies. Legal protection clinics are organised in the Guidance Corner on Fridays according to the following schedule:
8 February at 11 am–1 pm
8 March at 11 am–1 pm
3 May at 11 am–1 pm
17 May at 11 am–1 pm
We recommend that you check whether HYY’s new guide on legal protection has a quick answer to your question. The guide includes the most common problems that students of the University of Helsinki face in their studies as well as their solutions. You can read the guide online at hyy.fi/legalprotection or get yourself a printed copy from either the legal protection clinic or HYY’s Services Office!
You can also get guidance on legal protection by email or phone from HYY’s specialist in charge of advice on legal protection. In matters not related to studies, HYY’s members are entitled to free legal aid provided by Pykälä’s Legal Aid Committee. Legal aid in Swedish is provided by Codex.
