"An important milestone"

Thuan Nguyen | Mathematics

 I come from Vietnam and have lived here in Jyväskylä for two years. One of the most important reasons for me to apply was the international reputation of the Department of Mathematics. The department frequently organizes seminars and events with diverse topics, which give opportunities to accumulate and share knowledge and establish international relationships.

I have received a lot of support and advice from the people at JYU, especially from my supervisors. They are willing to help you as much as possible whenever you need support, no matter if it is a technical issue or an administration procedure.

I have noticed that students are motivated and inspired by their lecturers to develop themselves and not just learn for the grades. I also really like the friendly attitude by lecturers and instructors and the flexibility in how classes are taught.

Jyväskylä is an awesome, beautiful and friendly city surrounded by amazing nature. A great idea is to get a bike and discover the city. The summer is gorgeous! The green color of the leaves everywhere, and the big forest areas waiting for exploring. 

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Jyväskylä is an important milestone in my life that enhances my confidence and gives me a great opportunity to pursue my future research career!
