Available courses for exchange and other short-term students:

Exchange students

(Erasmus, Nordplus/Nordlys, bilateral agreements)

Exchange students come from universities with which we have a valid exchange agreement. These students are registered at their home university and are in the process of completing a degree there. Credits for courses completed at the University if Jyväskylä (JYU) will be transferred to the home university degree. Before you can apply to the Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences you need to be nominated as an exchange candidate by your home university.

The students from the following universities can apply as exchange students to the Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences:

Exchange student application deadlines for the academic year 2017-2018

  • 15 May 2017 for the autumn term or the whole academic year
  • 1 November 2017 for the spring term

Study plan

It is recommended that you prepare a study plan with the home university to agree about the courses taken in Jyväskylä during the exchange stay. For Erasmus students, the learning agreement is obligatory. To make a preliminary study plan for your exchange period, please see the tentative course programme .

Accommodation

Accommodation will be guaranteed for the exchange students if the application for accommodation is returned on time. The exchange students will be accommodated either in the Kortepohja student village, situated about 2 km from the faculty, or at the KOAS student apartments. The accommodation includes a single bedroom with shared kitchen and bathroom. More information

More information and the online application form can be found from the International Office website.

Visiting students

If you are enrolled at a university that does not have an exchange agreement with the JYU, but you have some special reasons to study with us, there is a possibility to apply for a visiting student status. Please note, however, that this requires existing contacts between your professor and our Faculty and only very few visiting students can be accepted.

Annual application deadlines

  • 30 April for the autumn semester or for the whole academic year
  • 1 October for the spring semester

Please, contact the International Coordinator of the Faculty if you are interested in this option.
