"Create Memories That Will Last a Lifetime"

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 29 May. The orientation will take place in Helsinki on Saturday 30 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 31 May are all included in the administration fee. We start the studies on Monday 1 June and classes commence right after that.

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


Courses 2020 | 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.

Note: The academic content of some courses is suitable for both Bachelor's and Master's level. Please follow the link to the course descriptions and check the accreditation procedure with your home university.


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.

This powerful team of professionals from China, Finland and USA leads our Bioengineering @jamksummerschool ! Dr. Stephen Kelley (2. left) from @nc.state sais ”The Bioeconomy is a very exciting, and complex, topic. The details of growing sustainable biomass, and then converting these different feedstocks to fuels or products requires an understanding of complex engineering and chemical concepts. But if you then add on the constraint of 'making money' it becomes even more difficult. However, this is the reality today, so teaching students about the trade-offs of technology, sustainability and economics makes this a challenging class for both the students, and the teachers!” Dr. Kelley with Mrs. @anneli.kakko from JAMK and Dr. Yuzhen Zhou ja Jianming Xu from HNU. . #jamk #jamksummerschool #bioengineering #bioeconomy #sustainability #biomass #technology #schooloftechnology #jamkengineering
