Tampere – the student friendliest city in Finland

Finland has been ranked by Newsweek as the "World’s Best Country" with special strengths in quality of life and education. Finland also has one of the highest levels of gender equality and is well known for its nature and eco-friendly culture. Moreover, Tampere has year after year been rated in various surveys as Finland´s most popular place to live and study.

Tampere is a city of four institutions of higher education with altogether more than 40 000 students. In a city of 220 000 inhabitants, that is a lot! This is visible in good student housing facilities, a plethora of student events, and discounts for students in shops and services around the city. Tampere University of Technology is located in the suburb of Hervanta where everything a student may need is available right next door but the city centre is only a short bus ride away. TUT’s compact yet comfortable campus area provides excellent facilities for work and studies as well as leisure activities. Could the conditions for getting your academic career started be any better?

I wanted to study at a place where I can pursue what I love but also get a lifetime of experience. And TUT was a good fit for these criteria. Here, my group has students from 12 different countries and that’s an amazing thing itself. (First-year BSc student, 2016)
Going to TUT is definitely an academic milestone in my life. It took a long process and effort to get to this point, but I cannot describe how satisfied and glad I am to be part of this amazing community full of great facilities, resources, people, and spirit. (First-year BSc student, 2016)
