The Centre for Multilingual Academic Communication - Movi

Movi designs and offers all degree specific communication and language courses. Our goal is for all students to develop multilingual academic communication competence so that they can engage in expert activities in all the languages they need, both during their studies and after completion. We offer about 600 courses every year for students and staff at the University of Jyväskylä. All our courses are free of charge.

Do you teach in English? 

Teaching Academic Content in English, TACE-programme is a popular staff training course that combines various teaching methods in a multicultural and multilingual group to bring awareness and pedagogical skills to bear on the modern, international classroom. University's language policy states requirements for teaching through English and TACE helps you ensure the needed skills. 

What is so unique about Movi?

Our teaching is based on the most recent research as well as on the needs of working life. All Finnish university degrees have a compulsory language and communication element. Movi's innovation and a huge undertaking has been to re-structure the degree-specific courses into multilingual entities. These run parallel the BA study content to ensure that the students learn and practice skills, strategies and content exactly when they need them.

We understand that modern society calls for diverse paths for both study trajectories and for transitioning to work life. That is why we also design courses for students with different educational and linguistic backgrounds.
