Join our optional Study Tours

You can join our excursions to Tallinn, Estonia, St Petersburg, Russia and Stockholm, Sweden. You can also travel on your own or with other students as Jyväskylä is located in the centre of Finland making it very easy for one to explore the other Finnish cities and small towns during the weekends. And why not make the most of your time in Northern Europe and continue your stay with a visit to any European countries, which are only a few hours away by plane.

Optional study tours are organised by different travel agencies.

  Helsinki weekend 1-3 June

Fresh and surprising. Dynamic and lively. Enjoy the slow rhythm of urban Helsinki. Explore and be inspired. The Summer School experience starts with a weekend in our beautiful capital Helsinki. Our student tutors will meet you at your arrival to Finland and guide and spend time with you and your fellow students in Helsinki. Professional tour guides will take you for a city tour and show the most interesting attractions and sights, such as the Senate Square, Helsinki Cathedral, Sibelius Monument etc. Helsinki is a modern city with half a million residents and yet full of history and small enough for you to get around easily.
