Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are current international degree students of University of Jyväskylä and they come from all around the world. They are a useful contact point to answer any type of questions international degree students may have about the University or Jyväskylä or Finland. The Student Ambassadors can be contacted on Facebook (The Student Ambassadors at University of Jyväskylä) where they answer questions and post information about student life in Jyväskylä.


Tutors are more senior students who help the new students in all practical matters related to studying and settling in to Jyväskylä. A personal tutor is nominated for each foreign student, and this tutor will help with all general, practical matters, such as opening a bank account at the beginning of the studies. Finnish students who have not previously studied at the University will be appointed a Finnish tutor or a staff member, who will help the students with practicalities such as using the Korppi system.
