Student services

Student well-being services aim to provide adequate support and means for promoting and managing well-being. Student well-being services are available to students throughout the study period.

Counselling psychologists and well-being advisors offer support in challenges of personal life and studies through individual appointments, education and small group activities.

Housing services

  • There is a lot of competition in affordable housing, so it is important to start searching for a room many months prior to arrival. Look into different options and make sure that you have reserved accommodation before you arrive.
  • Metropolia does not have housing services to offer. Thus it is the student's responsibility to find an accommodation for the period of their studies.

Average school

It is a good university, many teachers are helpful, but some don't care about the students. Overall average school.

There are always pluses and minuses!
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I enjoy my studies. I like the teaching and learning. For all the assignments there is always enough time to do. Whole amount of support I get from school is amazing. Only thing that bugs me, is the financial situation. I manage but I need more support with the financial part. I wish I could planned a little better beforehand so I wouldn't have that problem from the start....
