The purpose of the Student Union’s International Affairs is to supervise the interests of international students and the internationalization of the Finnish students of the University of Jyväskylä.  The international sector aims to promote interaction between different cultures. With its help, international students have opportunities to get to know Finnish people and culture, and Finnish students get the chance to experience an international atmosphere and learn about different cultures. The international sector organizes international events and activities. There is no need to go abroad to become international – you can do it in your own campus!
