Students highly value our university

The latest International Student Barometer (ISB) conducted in autumn 2017 demonstrates that the international students at Tampere University* report very high levels of satisfaction with their university in the category of facilities (virtual learning, the physical library and technology), safety, student support services, teaching and course organisation and language support. The students' willingness to recommend Tampere University to others is among the top. Overall, 120 higher education institutions participated in the survey worldwide, including 15 Finnish higher education institutions.

* The latest International Student Barometer was conducted in late 2017 and the results published in 2018, reflecting the combined results of the predecessor institutions of the merged Tampere University. The University will participate in the survey again in late 2020.
