Who we are

The University of Tampere, Tampere University of Technology and Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK) are building a new higher education community and creating a new model for higher education in Finland.

Our new higher education community will begin its operations on 1 January 2019, when the University of Tampere and Tampere University of Technology are merged to create the new Tampere University. The university and the university of applied sciences will also tighten their collaboration.

We bring together research in the fields of, for example, economics, health, society and technology. We are creating a multidisciplinary, inspirational and globally attractive research and learning environment that explores new frontiers in interdisciplinary research.

Our higher education community is an engine of growth and provides new solutions to global challenges. Humanity lies at the core of our community. We are committed to building a strong international presence and are especially known for our advanced pedagogical expertise. We combine science with business and industry to drive new global demand for Finnish expertise.

Our new community’s website will be launched in three stages in autumn 2018. This is the first version that allows you explore our international degree programmes and vocational teacher education.

Information about all the other educational opportunities that we offer will be published on this website in October and November 2018.

The rest of our web content will become available in December 2018.
