International Jyväskylä – Info Center is a joint initiative of the City of Jyväskylä and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment.

Initial assessments 

Did you know that, as an international degree student, you can request an Initial assessment from International Jyväskylä – Info Center (as per the Finnish Act on the Promotion of Immigrant integration)? Initial assessment is meant to map out your possible needs related to studies and language training, employment, socializing and networking, hobbies or any other aspect, which could help you integrate better into the Finnish society. It does not matter if you are new here or have been living in this region for quite a while. You can get in touch with us. More information about us and our counselors from our webpage: International Jyväskylä – Info Center in English | Jyväskylä.fi (jyvaskyla.fi) 

Save the dates 

You will see us in JAMK’s upcoming Boost your career skills event on 14.1.2022. 

In addition to this, book your diaries for 31.1.2022 15-16, as we will be seeing you in a webinar, which is being planned exclusively for international degree students at JAMK.
