The studies are conducted in cooperation with real gaming companies and gaming communities, says Niko Kiviaho, a lecturer at JAMK.

The five English Master’s Degree Programmes are Cyber Security, International Business Management, Sport Business Management, Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics and Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy.

Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics and Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy are also completely new programmes offered at JAMK. Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy provides the ability to act as a member of a coaching team in competitive sports, promoting the training and performance of athletes.

Artificial Intelligence is a field that has a growing hype around it: JAMK offered an AI study programme in Finnish already in fall 2019, which was filled in a record breaking time of three minutes!

Finnish legislation on tuition fees obligates higher education institutions to charge tuition fees for students who are not citizens of a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country. The fee for Bachelor’s Degrees is 8000 € / academic year and 9000 € / academic year for Master’s Degrees. However, in the first academic year JAMK offers a scholarship that covers 50% of the tuition fee at JAMK. In the following academic years the scholarship covers 50% of the tuition fee if a student earns at least 60 credits per academic year in Bachelor's degrees (30 credits per academic year in Master's degrees). For EU and EEA citizens, tuition fees do not apply.

The application period ends in January 22 at 3PM (UTC +2:00). In addition to Finland, entrance exams are arranged in various countries for the majority of the Degree Programmes by Finnips. The remaining Degree Programmes can arrange an entrance exam via Skype/Zoom. Further information about all the Degree Programmes and how to apply can be found at www.jamk.fi/applynow.
