Tampere University offers study opportunities to degree students who arrive in Finland due to the humanitarian crisis caused by the war in Ukraine. The University grants rights to study in Open University and non-degree courses.

Students who obtain a right to study are exempt from tuition fees. Moreover, researchers can apply for fixed-term Postdoctoral Research Fellow posts. 

Tampere University’s English-language studies are aimed at bachelor’s and master’s level students whose studies have been interrupted at a Ukrainian higher education institution. Applications will be processed until the end of 2022. The rights to study will be granted until 31 July 2023.  

“We are discussing with our colleagues in Ukrainian universities what would be the most appropriate support measures. We are also looking at how we could support Ukrainian students with our scholarship schemes,” says Vice President for Education Marja Sutela.  

Tampere University has also opened a call for applications for five (5) two-year fixed-term and full-time Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions based in Tampere. This call is for Ukrainian post-docs who cannot continue their work in Ukraine due to the war and are seeking a temporary position abroad. Read more on Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions.    

In addition, Tampere University cooperates with the City of Tampere and other regional bodies to provide support for those who are fleeing Ukraine. 

Further information on the Open University studies and the application form is available on Tampere University’s website.
