Back in June I posted about the upcoming open house and promised more information.  Read the first post here.  The following is a rough translation of the upcoming events at Rajakatu 35 (Main Campus).  There is also something on offer on Puistokatu and in Dynamo.  You can see the entire program in Finnish from: http://www.jamk.fi/tutustu/tapahtumat/avoimetovet/prime117.aspx


The main campus at Rajakatu 35 houses approximately 2700 students (future engineers, Bachelors of Business Administration, Bachelor of Hospitality Management to name a few). The main campus is very international: There are about 250 degree students in studying in our English education programs, and about 400 exchange students every year. The main Campus also houses Vocational Teacher Education. The different presentation points are open from 9.30 to 15 unless otherwise noted.

From the Old to the New

Come remember the good old days when teachers used sticks and chalk and then travel through the ages to the modern-day.  See how things have changed in teaching.  We’ll offer entertainment in the Arts Wing.  You won’t be bored and you’ll find that “Teacher Talks – Student Listens” not the only way of learning.
