Student chaplain

The student chaplain in Helsinki and Vaasa offers students the possibility to come and discuss almost any topic: study-related stress, everyday life, life changing choices, loneliness - nothing is too big or small. You can contact the student priest.

Do you want to talk to someone? The student chaplain is at your service!

The student chaplain is available to everyone from the Hanken community and is ready to listen to anything you need to talk about; study, work and leisure, happiness and sorrow, relationships and loneliness, stress and anxiety, spiritual matters and doubt. The student chaplain wants to offer a safe space for everyone, regardless of your background, religious conviction, gender or sexual orientation. The student chaplain also has professional confidentiality.

The student chaplain is a priest in the Finnish Evangelical-Lutheran church, but is available to everyone. What we talk about is up to you.

Studentprästen talar också svenska.
