Intensive, three-week study tracks have been designed to challenge and inspire you in your studies. JAMK Online Summer School includes lectures, individual assignments, group work and presentations in the virtual classroom. Each year JAMK Summer School gathers around 200 students and lecturers from e.g. Argentina, Mexico, Canada, Singapore, the USA, and from Europe.

Classmates from various colleges and universities add to your experience both inside and outside the virtual classroom. Together, you’ll take courses and broaden your network — an important facet in today’s global, and competitive, workplace environment. So in addition to learning, the online summer school offers you a chance to experience the future of team work in the digital age. Digital team building is fun!

The orientation will take place on Thursday 3th of June, 5:00 p.m (UTC+2). You will meet faculty and students from all over the world and get familiar with the practicalities of the online summer school. We start the online studies on Monday 7 June and classes commence right after that. Our teaching faculty uses Zoom as the virtual teaching platform.

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

Social Programme for Summer 2022


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.

  • a pocket size metropol with a lively urban centre
  • all the services, shops, schools and work are close at hand
  • a wide variety of leisure and sport activities
  • a modern centre for industry and learning
  • situated between lakes and hills
  • population over 140,000

How Finland ranks?
