Friendship Family Programme Application

By taking part in this programme you will have an opportunity to learn more about the Finnish culture and to experience the Finnish way of life outside the campus.

Please note that the programme does not include accommodation with families.

If you would like to apply to this programme, please complete this form no later than 1 August or 1 December. The information asked in this form is used by the International Office to match the families and students. Your contact information will be given to the family. Other information asked in this form will not be given to any outside party.

Due to the limited number of families, the programme cannot be offered to all international students. Therefore, please consider carefully whether you can devote time for this activity, before submitting the application. Please read the principles of the programme.

Please fill out all application fields with care – a thorough application increases the chance of us finding you a family.

This application is valid for one semester at a time. If you stay in Jyväskylä for more than one semester and do not get a family during the first application round, please fill in this form again if you would like your application to be considered for the next semester.

In the beginning of the semester you will be informed via email whether you are matched with family or not.

Your information will be handled according to the JYU privacy notice.
