Before you arrive

At the University

Each semester begins with a Welcome Week. The orientation programme is designed to help you settle in and get to know other exchange students, the University and the city of Tampere. As an exchange student, you will need to deal with a number of organisational matters, but you will be assigned a student tutor who will help you through the first weeks. Our staff of Incoming Students Office will be happy to accompany and support you every step of the way to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
