Student Ambassadors

Student ambassadors are JYU students helping you out regarding any question about studying at JYU or living in Jyväskylä.

Anybody can make use of our ambassadors, but they mostly work with students who are interested in studying in a degree programme at the University of Jyväskylä, or students who are already here in Finland.

JYU student ambassadors are active on campus and on the internet. They spend their time

  • posting information about student life in Jyväskylä and answering questions from prospective students on Facebook,
  • posting pictures on Instagram and writing interesting blog posts.
  • engaging in international student life on campus.
