Bachelor's and Master's Studies in English

Finland is different, and Finns are quirky. As there are so few of us, we can't afford to leave anyone behind. That's why we have the best education system in the world.

Join a unique university community

Tampere University of Applied Sciences and Tampere University form a new kind of higher education community at the beginning of 2019. Join our community of 10 000 students at TAMK and 30 000 students at the University - and carve your own path to success!

The next application period for our Bachelor's programmes is 9 - 23 January 2019 and Master's programmes 4 December 2018 - 23 January 2019.

What happens on 1 January 2019?

University of Tampere (UTA) and Tampere University of Technology (TUT) will merge to form a new foundation-based university, Tampere University from 1 January 2019.

What makes this a completely unique hub of knowledge and community is the addition of Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK) through majority shareholding. This will bring together a total of about 40 000 students and staff to form a new community of higher education: Tampere Universities.

During the planning and preparation stages this process has been known as Tampere3.

From which higher education institution will I graduate?

Students of the merging universities will continue their studies seamlessly in their original degree programmes and graduate from the new Tampere University.

Students enrolled at TAMK will remain in their cohort and will graduate from Tampere University of Applied Sciences. Although visually and in spirit we will form a new joint community, pertaining to the Finnish law governing higher education we will remain separate institutions.

Can I choose any courses at any time from Tampere University?

All students can tailor their studies with supplemental courses from within the community. Companies, surrounding society and NGO's are an essential partner and resource for learning and will guarantee a living, evolving field for applied and highest level of research.

With the Cross-Institutional Studies Agreement, the course selection open for degree students in both TAMK and Tampere University will increase significantly.

Bear in mind that in order to graduate from a certain degree programme, you must complete the mandatory studies according to the curricula to fulfill professional requirements. In addition, same criteria of previous studies and priority orders still applies in course enrolment. The amount of elective studies and free electives varies quite a lot between programmes. 

 

Is it easy to change from TAMK to Tampere University or vice versa?
You canot change from one institution to another without following the official student selection process. Although visually and in spirit we will form a new joint community, pertaining to the Finnish law governing higher education we will remain separate institutions - TAMK and Tampere University.
