The Well-being Services at Metropolia have informed Metropolia students via intranet to offer support for the students who would like discuss the events. The International Services at Metropolia have also contacted the exchange students studying at Metropolia in autumn 2017.
Staff members can also contact the Well-being Services, for example, if they would like to have information on how to discuss the events with student groups.
Our thoughts are with everyone who have been affected and their families.
