Before mobility

When you plan your mobility period in Jyväskylä you should keep in mind the schedule for the academic year, vacations and bank holidays. Normally we receive more international students during springtime but please note that in Finland the spring semester ends already at the end of May and after graduation day our teachers and students start their summer holidays.
