Student life in Tampere
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.
