Tampere University

Tampere University

Tampere University is one of the most multidisciplinary universities in Finland. Almost all internationally recognised fields of study are represented at our university. Tampere University is a merger of the former University of Tampere and Tampere University of Technology. University of Tampere was first established in 1925 and Tampere University of Technology in 1965. Thus, we have many decades’ experience in educating university students.

Tampere University offers a wide range of Master’s Degree programmes conducted entirely in English. We offer our students flexible and individual degree paths that enable them to make effective academic progress. We educate shapers of the future – individuals who understand people, identify technological opportunities and are accustomed to a culture of co-operation already upon graduation.

We have over 19,000 degree students and award nearly 4,000 degrees annually. Together we solve the problems in fields of technology, health and society, as we believe the human potential is unlimited.

Research at the University

Research at Tampere University focuses especially on topics related to technology, health and society. Numerous research groups and networks operate in our community conducting multidisciplinary and diverse studies across organisational boundaries.

The research undertaken at our Centres of Excellences (CoE) ranges from game culture studies to tumour genetics.

Our missions in research, development and innovation are to maintain a just and participatory society, to promote health and well-being for all sections of the population, to build efficient and safe environments, and to ensure that social responsibility is respected also in the turmoil caused by digitalisation and the transformation of work.

Campus life

Tampere is known for its active student life. In Tampere every sixth resident is a student which contributes to the relaxed and vibrant atmosphere of the city. It is also visible in good student housing facilities, a plethora of student events, and discounts for students in shops and services around the city. All this and the outstanding lake views guarantee that Tampere is your best choice. According to several national surveys, Tampere is the most popular city to live and study in Finland.

Our campuses provide services and flexible spaces in three different locations: City Centre, Kauppi and Hervanta.
