Tampere Summer School: General information

Tampere Universities postpones Tampere Summer School to 2024. Tampere Summer School has been jointly organised by Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences since 2018. Stay tuned for information of our future summer plans.

Tampere Summer School is jointly organised by Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences. It offers inspiring courses covering a range of academic fields and up-to-date topics. The Summer School is open for university students and graduates from all around the world.

The summer of 2021 was the fourth summer school organized together with Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences. During these four years over 1100 students have spent two weeks of their summer with us while learning something new, making friends from all over the world and enjoying the Finnish nature and the relaxed atmosphere in Tampere!

In addition to studying, Tampere Summer School students have the opportunity to enjoy social events and explore the city in their free time. Tampere is a compact-sized active and vibrant city with a relaxed atmosphere, and the beautiful lake surroundings display the amazing Finnish nature at its best. Tampere Summer School offers possibilities to expand your international network also by joining our optional online social activities. 

For degree students of Tampere Universities, Tampere Summer School offers an excellent chance to earn extra credits in the summer and enjoy the international atmosphere in your home city. All courses are free of charge for degree and exchange students of Tampere Universities!
