JAMK suspends the admission of students from abroad until the autumn

Due to the rapid growth of corona infections in Jyväskylä, JAMK will no longer take in students from abroad during the spring semester and summer. Only students who have already arrived in Finland or are traveling to Finland on 28 January will be accepted.

Due to the spread of infections among students in Jyväskylä and the risk created by more infectious corona mutations, JAMK University of Applied Sciences will suspend the admission of all foreign students until 31 July. Teaching is arranged as remote teaching for those who cannot enter Finland during the spring semester and summer.

Approximately 60 exchange students have arrived at JAMK during the academic year. JAMK has complied with the 14-day distance learning rule for students coming from abroad, during which time the students will not enter JAMK premises. Students have also been advices to avoid human contact in accordance to Finnish institute for wealth and welfare's (THL) guidelines. The students have received groceries distributed by JAMK upon arrival and have been instructed to online grocery shopping.

Studies at JAMK will continue mainly as distance learning in accordance with the recommendations of the City of Jyväskylä. In distance learning, the only exceptions are exams for students, which will be held taking safety distances account. The face mask recommendation and good hand hygiene also apply. Entry to JAMK's campuses is allowed only when healthy.
