Orientation programme for international students

Each semester begins with an orientation programme.

The orientation programme is designed to help new international students settle in and get to know each other, the University and the City of Jyväskylä. It is recommended that all new international students take part in the programme as it gives valuable information on studying and living in Jyväskylä. The orientation is organized jointly by the University of Jyväskylä and the Student Union. Please see the campus map for the locations.


During the academic year 2018-2019, the orientation programme takes place as follows:

  • Autumn semester: 4-6 September 2018
  • Spring semester: 3-4 & 7 January 2019
