JAMKO guide for new students

Welcome to your new student life with JAMKO

Congratulations on your study place here at Jamk! You are reading Student Union JAMKO’s guide for new students of Jamk UAS! We have shortened it Jopas, a rough translation for JAMKO guide in Finnish.

On these pages you’ll find all the information you need to start your studies and new chapter in your life as smoothly as possible. You can get to know JAMKO, Jamk UAS and the services of your new hometown Jyväskylä. The pages contain links to more specific information and help you to the origins of student life.

We hope that we have managed to answer all the questions you might have, but if you need more information, don’t hesitate to ask. You will find the contact information to Jamk UAS and JAMKO via the links.

We are looking forward of meeting you all!

Best wishes, JAMKO’s folk
