Intensive, three-week study tracks have been designed to challenge and inspire you in your studies. JAMK Summer School includes lectures, workshops, get-togethers and interesting site visits. Each year JAMK Summer School gathers around 200 students and lecturers from e.g. Argentina, Mexico, Canada, Singapore, the USA, and from Europe. 

The Summer School programme starts with a weekend in Helsinki, the capital of Finland, where we ask the students to arrive on Friday 31 May. Our student tutors will meet you at the airport and guide you to the city centre and your accommodation. Two nights at a hostel, guided sightseeing tour and bus transfer to Jyväskylä on Sunday 2 June are all included in the administration fee. We start the studies with Orientation on Monday 3 June and classes commence right after that.

Welcome to our Summer School, one of the best experiences of your life!

Courses 2019 | 3 ECTS each

The Leadership, Communication and Tourism programme includes 4 courses of your own choice. Each course is 3 ECTS. After completing the courses you will receive a Transcript of Records on the credits you have earned. Contact hours are between 9 am - 4 pm on weekdays. 

Studies are a practical-oriented alternative to traditional university education and give the students an excellent combination of hands-on skills along with a strong theoretical knowledge base.

Jyväskylä, city of students

Jyväskylä has four beautiful seasons ranging from warm green summers to crisp white winters. The city, located in Central Finland, is surrounded by numerous beautiful lakes and scenic nature. Finland and Jyväskylä are safe places to study and live in. Jyväskylä is a city of students, where every 3rd person that you pass by is a student. The city is very dynamic. Take a look at the sports and cultural activities, not to mention the restaurants and cafés. One of JAMK’s international students was very surprised to get her lost wallet back. This can actually happen in Jyväskylä! Honesty is the hallmark of Finnish culture.
