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.

To celebrate our Tampere Summer School journey together we are happy to bring out our new look and at the same time announce our courses of 2021! The summer of 2021 will be the fourth summer school organized together with Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences. During these three years over 900 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, 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. On our online programme 2021 Tampere Summer School offers possibilities to expand your international network also by joining our optional online social activities. 

For degree students of Tampere Universities, 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!
