Exchange students!

Welcome to Helsinki!

What is  HLKS?

  • Association of Helsinki Dental Students
  • We offer a wide range of different happenings and free coffee.
  • Our school is in two separate locations: Meilahti and Ruskeasuo.
    • Meilahti:
      • We study alongside with Medical students.
      • We study here for the first two years and call it preclinic!
      • Studies mainly consist of basic medicine (not that much dentistry).
      • Include Lectures and PBL (Problem based learning) -sessions.
      • A students cafeteria is located here (Unicafe).
      • Address: Haartmaninkatu 8, 00290 Helsinki


  • Ruskasuo:
    • Here the Dental magic happens!
    • Three last years and we call it clinic!
    • Lectures, hands on courses and clinical work.
      • If you study at the clinic you must have your own shoes. If you study at the phantoms (hands on) you must have your own jacket. Everything else you will get from the school.
    • A students cafeteria is also located here (Unicafe).
    • Address: Mannerheimintie 172


  • Cheap lunch provided in student cafeteria (2.60€).
