JAMK University of Applied Sciences arranges an International Summer School every year in May – August. Our Summer School is a one to three-week educational period offered both to our students and students of our partner institutes. In addition to various lectures, our Summer School offers workshops, get-togethers and interesting site visits. The programme covers multiple disciplines and attracts both lecturers and students from all around the world.

For an international student Finland is both an exotic and  safe destination. We have one of the most advanced educational systems in the world, we invest in innovation and quality of life. The City of Jyväskylä is located in Central Finland with numerous beautiful lakes and scenic nature. Jyväskylä has appr. 133 000 inhabitants out of which every 4th is a student which makes the city very dynamic. During summer Jyväskylä attracts many international tourists, not least because of the FIA Neste Oil Rally Finland and many designs by the world famous architect Alvar Aalto. What an inspiring environment to experience JAMK Summer School!

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
  • cituated between lakes and hills
  • population 134,700

💭 Food for thought 💭 Neymar's €222 mil. transfer fee could cover JAMK's Summer School admission fee for 376.271 students. Too much? 🤔 #SummerSchoolvsNeymar #jamk #jamksummerschool #moneytalks
