History

The foundations of the University of Jyväskylä lie in the first Finnish-speaking teacher training college, Jyväskylä Teacher Seminary, established in 1863 by Uno Cygnaeus. He is often called "the Father of the Finnish Primary School System".

Teacher training and forward-looking work in teaching are counted among our strengths, along with natural sciences, humanities, sport and health.

We offer 20 high-quality, research-based two-year master’s degree programmes in English, which lead to an officially recognised master’s degree and qualify for doctoral studies.

Approximately 160 doctors graduate annually from the University of Jyväskylä. We educate research professionals and competent and versatile experts in various fields for the needs of society.

Our naturally beautiful campus is home to a dynamic multidisciplinary research university – an open and collaborative community of 2,600  experts and 15,000 students seeking answers to the pivotal questions of today and tomorrow.
