Are trying to finish your thesis during the spring semester? Get to know the different events and tools that Student services and the library are offering.

Student services organize events at Guidance Corner (Kaisa library, right next to the entrance in Fabianinkatu) that aim to support thesis writers with their work. The events are primarily meant for students studying in the old degree requirements who are planning to graduate before the end of the transition period. Other thesis writers can also register for the event, and they will get a possible confirmation after the sign-up period has closed.

The events are mainly organized in Finnish, but anyone can join the session and ask questions.
