News from LUT university
Your well-being is important to us, so we want to know how you are and how your studies are going. Last year has been exceptional in many ways, all events have been canceled and studies have been mostly remote learning.
We at the well-being team with LTKY and KOE have prepared a student well-being survey, which you can take from this link.
The survey is open (17.3-5.4), and the analysis will be done during spring. We are eager to improve our services to correspond to your and other students’ needs, so your answers are very important to us. The answers are given anonymously.

The Finnish Student Health and Wellbeing Survey
The national Finnish Student Health and Wellbeing Survey (KOTT) produces comprehensive and regular data on the welfare of student. The KOTT survey is implemented in cooperation between the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) and the Social Insurance Institution of Finland. The survey gathers information on the well-being, health and service needs of students, and the impact of the corona epidemic on their everyday life. The survey is sent to 10,000 students at universities of applied sciences and universities selected through random sampling. The research invitations are sent by email in February and the data collection ends in April. It is important that everyone invited to participate fills out the survey, as none of those invited can be replaced by anyone else. The study is implemented every four years. KOTT 2021 is the sixth KOTT survey. The Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS) was responsible for the implementation of the previous KOTT surveys. The results of the survey will be used to develop student health services. They may also be used to improve student restaurants and sports services. The results will be reported by the end of 2021.
