Tampere University is one of the most multidisciplinary universities in Finland. Almost all internationally recognised fields of study are represented at our university.

The new foundation-based Tampere University is a merger of the former Tampere University of Technology and the University of Tampere. University of Tampere was first established in 1925 and Tampere University of Technology in 1965. Thus, Tampere University has many decades’ experience in educating university students.

Over 30 Master’s Degree Programmes in English

Tampere University offers a wide range of Master’s Degree programmes conducted entirely in English.

We educate the shapers of the future – individuals who understand people, identify technological opportunities and are accustomed to the culture of cooperation already upon graduation.

Students can plan their studies flexibly and complete them within the target time. They have access to up-to-date information on the progress of their studies and the level of their skills. Doctoral training and research careers provide the basis for academic excellence.

All degrees include joint thematic learning outcomes related to digitalisation, internationality, communication skills, entrepreneurship and sustainable development.
