JAMK's functions that support well-being
Study counsellors and tutor teachers
The main goals of study counselling are ensuring effortless studying, developing expertise and supporting professional growth. During her/his studies a student has the right to receive support from their tutor teacher and study counsellor in different challenging situations such as issues relating to motivation, time management, coping and study well-being. Additionally, the tutor teacher and the study counsellor support the student in setting individual study goals and pursuing them, especially in situations where a student’s study-related capabilities require specific arrangements of services and forms of support.

A study psychologist guides and supports the students of JAMK University of Applied Sciences in challenges related to learning, motivation and management. Possible cases where a study psychologist should be contacted are instances of nervousness, anxiety, depression or a stressful situation in life. The goal of the service is to complement the guidance offered by teacher tutors and student counsellors. The study psychologist co-operates closely with the city of Jyväskylä’s student health services. The goal is to provide a network of support, where students can easily locate services that support their own studies. The service is free of charge for students.
