Get to know the education export services of Tampere university community.

Education Export

In the Tampere Universities community, we offer educational services to our partners around the world in various ways. As a multidisciplinary community, we want to take on global and local challenges in a new way.

What is education export in the Tampere Universities community?

Transnational education, international education, educational services... these are few of the terms used for describing the activities we do. In the Tampere Universities community, the exporting of education means sharing the Finnish expertise and pioneering methods with the rest of the world, so that we can all globally develop hand in hand and provide better opportunities for the learners of today and the future.

Finland has not always been the happiest country in the world. A long-term education reform plan played a crucial role in managing to leave from a poor, post-war scenario, and becoming the exemplary welfare state Finland is now. Our specialists’ knowledge of the local context, language and customs of our partners are our strengths in adapting this proved theory to our partner’s needs.

What is the Tampere Universities community?

Building a new model for higher education and research.

Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK) constitute the Tampere Universities community.

Together we are building a new model for higher education and research in Finland. Our new community brings together research and education, for example, in the fields of economics, technology, health and society.

Tampere University was created at the beginning of 2019, when the University of Tampere and Tampere University of Technology were merged. The new university maintains close ties with TAMK.
