Student life in Tampere

At Tampere university community our communal culture is built on active student participation. Our shared values are proactivity, a keen interest in the activities of our university community, a sense of responsibility, a commitment to effective academic progress and learning, and peer networking. Our students are actively involved in development activities that concern them.

Studying in Tampere

Tampere has been ranked No. 1 in the national survey of best study places in Finland! Tampere is a very lively city with plenty of choices for freetime activities, events, live music and possibility to easily get around by bike or on foot. But what makes us the most attractive place to study are the numerous different options to combine studies from a variety of disciplines, the central location of all our campuses and short distance to Helsinki and other major cities in Finland.
