Summer and Winter Schools

University of Jyväskylä organises short term programmes for international students in a variety of Summer Schools and Winter Schools.

The Summer and Winter Schools are short programmes, mirroring the versatility of our academic disciplines. In the current multilingual and cross-cultural society, experience of foreign cultures and habits is an important part of the learning path for everyone. The Summer and Winter Schools offer interdisciplinary learning in a variety of subjects, a fruitful environment for new ideas and innovations, as well as enable forming new connections and improving language and communication skills. For the students and researchers of the University of Jyväskylä the Schools provide the possibility to get valuable international experience without even stepping outside the home campus.
