Cheers to the effective progress towards degreesGlasses were raised at Tampere University of Technology in recognition of the hard work and dedication of students who earned at least 55 credits in the past academic year.
“This event celebrates the academic performance of our exemplary and hard-working students. We hope that it shows how much the University appreciates your achievement and also inspires others to follow your lead,” says Vice President for Education Petri Suomala.
Some 1,500 students, or roughly 30 per cent of the entire student population, earned at least 55 credits at TUT in the academic year 2016-2017. The completion of 55 credits or more each year demonstrates to students that their hard work is paying off and that they can graduate and enter the working world within the target time.
The hard work of students also translates into financial gains for the University. Ten per cent of the funding that comes from the Ministry of Education and Culture is allocated based on the number of students who earn a minimum of 55 credits per academic year.
