Groups to Support Studies and Wellbeing

In Jamk it is possible to get group guidance and study support during different phases of study. The groups provide support in problems related to comprehensive well-being and stage fright, and make tools available for the problems of reading, writing as well as making the sense of written language. You may participate in group work even when you have not been able to advance in your studies at the rate planned. Working in a group enables one to share experiences with other students.

Not all courses are offered every academic year, so please check the Peppi system.
