A total of 2,023 degrees were completed at Tampere University of Applied Sciences in 2020. Despite the exceptional year, the number of graduates was on the level of the years before. The employment rate immediately after graduation has been almost 80% in recent years.

“2020 was a challenging year in many ways for both students and staff. Now at the end of the year, we can state that we succeeded in organisation of teaching and services as well as possible. The number of completed credits was even higher than the year before. We follow the pandemic closely and aim at ensuring learning preconditions and a safe environment for all,” says Vice President Päivi Karttunen
