Courses for exchange students at Tampere University

Although the two higher education institutions in Tampere formed a new community in January 2019, the course selection and registration still follows the rules of the campus you are applying to. Despite some limitations, there are many English-taught courses open to students from all campuses and other institutions.

In order to prepare your preliminary study plan, first note to which campus you are applying to and your home university has an agreement with (if you are unsure which one is correct, contact your exchange coordinator).

Please note that our three campuses are not really close to each other. All campuses are accessible by public transport and approximate travel times by bus or tram are:

  • Hervanta <> city centre campus 15-25 minutes
  • Hervanta campus <> Kauppi campus 25-40 minutes
  • city centre campus <> Kauppi campus 10-20 minutes

For more details and public transport schedules, please see Nyssen reittiopas.
