What is EduFutura Jyväskylä?

EduFutura Jyväskylä (pages in Finnish) is a learning, research, and development community formed by the Jyväskylä Educational Consortium Gradia, JAMK University of Applied Sciences, and the University of Jyväskylä. We collaboratively develop the learning solutions of the future and create diverse opportunities for students to pursue flexible study paths.

The Heart of Finnish Education – City of Jyväskylä was the first place in Finland in mid 1800s to acquire a Finnish language grammar school, a teacher training college for primary school teachers and a school for girls. Ever since, the city has encouraged lifelong learning. Jyväskylä is student-friendly, continuously growing city with a population of 142,000, of which every third are students.
