Human potential unlimited.

The Tampere higher education community has a new way of doing things.

The priority areas of the new Tampere higher education community are technology, health and society. Our particular strength is the combination of these areas. We are creating a multi-disciplinary, inspirational and globally attractive research and learning environment – with humanity at the core of it.

We work to solve society’s major challenges and create new opportunities. Our efforts are steered by a commitment to link pioneering research and innovation, promote interdisciplinary education and life-long partnerships, and generate unique expertise in industrial and public sector implementation.

We offer our students flexible and individual study paths that enable them to develop in-depth expertise, mutual understanding, and grasp broad multidisciplinary perspectives.

Our higher education community is the second largest university community in Finland with our 35 000 students, 50 international degree programmes, 3 500 international students and 1 000 international partnerships.
