Latest updates on the coronavirus

Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences are actively monitoring the coronavirus situation and decisions issued by the public authorities and will issue necessary instructions together. In all our communications, we will adhere to the instructions provided by the public authorities and respect the privacy of individuals.

The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) has found that the epidemic situation has changed to a long-term endemic. Because Covid-19 infections still occur, the responsible actions of University community members are vital to prevent the spreading of the disease.

Tampere Universities has returned to in-person teaching. However, teaching can also be delivered in a remote or hybrid format for pedagogical reasons.
