Do not go with car from 1200 to 1400. The parking is full usually. And there is not enough free parking around that time.
Good campus precedents designed by Alvar Aalto.
I am from Saudi Arabia. I thank this student (Mäki-Kuutti) for his university thesis that helped me in my research in my University ..................Mäki-Kuutti, M. (2014). Language acquisition through interaction between gamers in digital gaming environments. University of Jyväskylä.
It’s been a disappointing student experience in terms of teacher quality. Both of my main teachers have actually never taught in any school level much less university. I quickly learned that in Finland being a researcher is the primary and teaching is a secondary thing for these instructors. Many of them, with the exception of some of the foreign teachers or Finns who have taught abroad, don’t know how to effectively teach in the classroom at least not to the standards I have seen elsewhere. Merely reading slides or acting as a facilitator when every single class is a peer review(student teaching students) session is an easy way to get out of the responsibilities of figuring out a proper effective teaching strategy under the cloak of ‘collaboration’. On the flip side I will say this is the easiest degree I will receive; the classes were all so easy and non rigorous, so I guess that’s the good part. Class schedule is light and there were many classes that you were simply given reading assignments to write essays on and that was the entire class.
A good place to study. The placement of the different departments can get a bit confusing though, so make sure to check the maps well in advance so you don't miss your schedules!
