How to apply?

First, complete a UPEI Exchange Application.

Once complete, UPEI will nominate you to JYU and students will then go through JYU's online application form and instructions for completing the application.

The extended application deadline is March 25, 2021. You are welcome to apply for the full summer school program (one course per week) or parts of it. Each course lasts one week and they are 2-5 ECTS credits. One UPEI course transfer must equal a total of 6 ECTS (certain courses can be combined).


Students from partner universities all over the world are invited to apply to the Summer School.


Students will be required to pay UPEI (not the JYU) for applicable tuition and fees per course transfer. This arrangement is under the framework of the bilateral cooperation agreements between the University of Jyväskylä and UPEI.
