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.

Remember that all studies are free of charge for our students and staff.

Care dogs

The care and reading dogs of the Kennel Club started their “work” on the campus in autumn 2018. This Knowhau programme has proved to be popular and is now expanding: more staff members are joining the team of voluntary Kennel Club instructors in Jyväskylä.
