Oho, Sport Psychology?! Noniin!

“Hey, was it Sport Management program?” was my first question when we had our first meeting for 10 credits Sport Psychology course! And since then I was only studying psychology… But it’s fine! Cause I have expanded my knowledge in that field significantly! I feel it was a really great choice to apply to this…

New beginnings

Little over a month ago we started our studies at Jyväskylä. Everything has been interesting so far and I feel good about the future. The group and staff are nice and the atmosphere is relaxed. For me the greatest change has been in the scheduling of studies. For the past years I have been able…

It feels like home already

So far so good! It’s been about a month of studying and living in Jyväskylä now, and life is becoming more settled. There seems to be a good atmosphere within our class, we all come along well despite our different backgrounds. Thanks to those differences and all the experiences each of us has had, the…

Jyväskylä? There is nothing to do there!

I am not gonna hide that these where originally my thoughts also. But thoughts from actual experiences tend to be quite different and that was for once more the case. Firstly i got into the orientation week getting general information about the campus and also the city. At that point i heard that Jyväskylä was…

Let the Year of Studying Commence!

Hi everyone! My name is Rosa-Maria and I’m one of the newbies in SportPro programme. I’d like just start this blog post by announcing that I have never wrote a blog post and this feels very very strange! So yeah, let me get in to it. I’m here to tell you guys whoever is reading…

From no studies to full studies

A lot has happened since I moved to Jyväskylä two weeks ago. It has been an emotional rollercoaster with new environment, new studymates and everything else. I have been living alone in Helsinki for the past six years and now living with roommates in Jyväskylä and also my last studies ended six years ago so everything feels new…

Start of a new chapter in Jyväskylä

As a student going to a new city you don’t really know what to expect, you see pictures on the internet of the nature and you hear how good the Universities in Finland are from people in your home country….. but then you actually start to live there. The first thing I noticed in Jyväskylä…

Summer School is about to start – But where is the summer?

The regular semester is coming to an end. We are done with the compulsory courses, the last deadlines are approaching, and the last exams are ahead. Some of us are done with the spring semester already, about to start their summer jobs, go home, push the thesis, or enjoy the summer (if it ever gets…

Highlights of the first year

Actually, I don’t have any proper words right now so let me open the secret files of SpoSMaPro 2016-2018. Usually the pictures are worth a thousand words 😉 The first day of our studies   Liikunta ball         Winter School   Exam parties – Himoshumallus in March    Ps. I’m looking forward to see…

Shifting Seasons

Time passes, and the Finnish summer is already right around the corner; something worth looking forward to! The full darkness wrapping around our winter doesn’t feel nearly as bad when you know the full light (and hopefully warmth) of summer… The hiking and jogging trails are melting by the minute, offering once again great opportunities…

Remember also…

We are heading towards the end of our first year. Spring time can be pretty hectic with many courses, but the finish line is nearly visible. So, the last sprint of this academic year has started! This time I decided not to plan my blog post that much – most probably you have seen it…

Small city with a big feel

Amici amici. This time I will use my blog entry to talk a bit about the life around university and spare you the Master’s Programme, deadlines and stress. So how is life here? What has Jyväskylä to offer? Housing: Student organisations offer apartments and shared flats all over the city. I live in a single…
