JAMK Summer School offers once again the possibility of doing summer studies

In addition to reaching the students of the international partner universities, JAMK Summer School also seems to attract an increasing number of JAMK students. 160 international students will arrive in Jyväskylä and approximately 180 JAMK students have enrolled in JAMK Summer School.

JAMK Summer School enables studies in many fields: business and communications, the social and health field, technology and teacher education. Responsible tourism has been added to the programme this year. Studying methods are diverse and dozens of international teachers will spice things up along with the Finnish teachers. The majority of the Summer School students will arrive in Jyväskylä over the weekend.

– Tutors trained by Student Union JAMKO will be greeting the students in Helsinki. Next week, the atmosphere at the Rajakatu and Lutakko campuses will be very international. The largest groups are coming from partner universities in Argentina, Mexico and California, but many students are also coming from Asia and Europe. Students at both Bachelor and Master’s levels are coming, says Specialist Minna Junttila who coordinates JAMK Summer School.

The Summer School is part of the co-operation between the universities, so the commitment of the organisations is important. In Jyväskylä, the students will mainly complete studies that are part of their degree back home.

– JAMK Summer School is very appealing and valued among the international partners due to the high-quality range of courses and efficient practical arrangements. In addition to the studies, the students arriving are interested in the chance of exploring not only Jyväskylä but also Helsinki, Stockholm and St Petersburg during the Summer School, says Junttila.

Extra-curricular activities include a cruise on Lake Päijänne. Students and teachers of JAMK Summer School will board M/S Rhea on Mon 6 June at 5.30–8 pm. One of the highlights will be a night of football with the players of JJK on the Vehkalampi field on Thu 9 June at 5–7 pm.  The Summer School students will learn about Finnish football training and get to test their skills with the Finnish hosts.

– In addition, the student tutors and students of the School of Health and Social Studies, among others, will arrange different activities for the international students in the evenings and at weekends, says Junttila.
