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.

Our instructions are in line with the nationwide guidelines approved by Universities Finland (Unifi) and the Rectors’ Conference of Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences (Arene).


As of 7 March 2022, Tampere Universities returned to in-person teaching. However, teaching can also be delivered in a remote or hybrid format for pedagogical reasons.

The regional pandemic steering group decided on 26 April 2022 that the recommendation on the use of face masks that will be put in place across the Tampere region will be largely similar to the recommendation issued by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL). Tampere Universities have adjusted their own recommendation accordingly. All the members of the Tampere Universities community are free to decide whether to wear a face mask to protect themselves, for example, in crowded public transport and indoor settings where social distancing is difficult.

If you arrive in Finland follow the instructions provided by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) and the Finnish Border Guard.
