Informaton about the optional sport courses YLIY010 and YLIY011


To get acquainted with different kinds of sport disciplines organised in the facilities of the University of Jyväskylä and the City of Jyväskylä. These optional courses are for all students of the University of Jyväskylä.

Completion mode

A student needs to participate in 15 classes (90 minutes each, 22.5 hours in total). A student can choose from different sport disciplines according to his/her schedule and preferences from the selection of approximately 50 classes offered in the YLIY programme during each term. During summer term we are not offering YLIY classes and a student can get one or two stamps from our summer courses for the blue participation card. The student can take one sport discipline maximum of two times. At least one of the sessions needs to be a lecture, maximum number of lectures included is two. The lecture can also be compensated by writing a two page learning diary of the YLIY classes. In the diary the student should give critical evaluation and feedback of the course. The student can complete only one YLIY course per term, but a course can also be completed during a longer period of time than one term.

The course is free of charge. You don´t need to have a sports sticker.

The programme


There is no need to register for the course itself, but the student needs to register in the Korppi system for each individual sport class. In addition, the student needs to get a blue participation card for the course from the University Sports Office, in which all the sessions are recorded with the date, sport discipline and the stamp of University Sports given by the teacher of each class. The full participation card needs to be submitted back to the University Sports´ Office (L176 or L172) in order to receive the credits for the course.

The sessions are meant only for those who will complete the whole course.

If you are on a waiting list, check the participation situation of the session until it starts. You can´t participate if you are on a waiting list.

It is important that a personal data (email and phone number) is updated in Korppi.
