For staff

“The valuing of diversity, multifaceted skills and a sense of togetherness permeate our activities. A multicultural and international work community that values and inspires individuals is our richness.” (Strategy of the University of Jyväskylä 2019–2030)

Multidisciplinary and international cooperation call for multilingual and intercultural competences alongside subject matter knowledge.

How do you want to develop your internationalisation competence?

Movi provides JYU staff with support and tools for developing their interaction skills:

The University of Jyväskylä Language Policy supports and facilitates internationalisation:

”The language policy promotes dynamic multilingualism, the ability to flexibly and rapidly react to communicative situations, the willingness to resort to even limited language skills as well as an open mind and a positive attitude towards different languages and language use. Modern multilingualism encompasses spontaneous and flexible co-existence of parallel languages in various communicative situations.” (p. 1)
