Language Centre

Welcome international students!



All of us at the University of Jyväskylä Language Centre wish to welcome you and hope that your stay in Jyväskylä will be a rewarding experience, both academically and interculturally.

There are two kinds of international students in Jyväskylä:

  • Exchange students
    who spend a semester or two here as part of studies in their home country

Both kinds of students might wish to develop their language skills for study or social purposes, but there might also be specific requirements that they need to observe.

The Language Centre offers:

  • Contact language teaching in 15 languages, with course levels ranging from beginner's to professional-level skills, depending on the student's previous knowledge
  • Buddy learning programme EOTO - Each One Teach One
  • E-learning options, which are usually blended (i.e. include independent and ICT-enhanced learning and tutoring)
  • Learning material for independent study in over 35 languages


Click on either 'exchange students' or 'degree students' above to proceed.
