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 3 June. 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 5 June are all included in the administration fee. The orientation will take place in Helsinki, on Saturday 4th 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 summer school. We start the studies on Monday 6 June, on JAMK campus in Jyväskylä.

Classmates from various colleges and universities add to your experience both inside and outside the 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 summer school offers you a chance to experience the future of team work in the digital age.

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