Our courses

Career Services helps departments supplement their curriculums with a course, Creating Careers, held in English. Students may also participate in individual lectures of the course, for example, as a part of a working life course arranged by the department. In case of larger student groups, please contact us in advance so that we can reserve the proper facilities. See: URAP002 Creating Careers

Career orientation courses

We help departments plan and implement various courses related to career orientation and knowledge on working life. We have years of experience with arranging these courses in cooperation with faculties and departments. In addition, you can order a CV workshop or a Making the Most of Work Experience workshop as part of your course.

Internship support

The departments of the University of Jyväskylä are using an electronic system for saving internship information. The system also creates internship agreements. The internship agreement defines the University’s and the employer’s responsibilities and obligations during the internship. The application is available at and the application instructions can be found here.
