Services for international students
Every year, just under one thousand international students come to the University of Tampere. Approximately half of them are degree students taking either a lower or a higher university degree in Finland. The degree students are spread out in schools that offer degree programmes in English.
The other half of the international students are exchange students whose stay in Tampere is much briefer. Most exchange students are Erasmus students, but some come to Finland through bilateral exchange agreements and a few have obtained their places of study independently.
Everyone studying towards a degree at the University of Tampere is automatically a member of the Student Union, which means that all international students are entitled to all of Tamy's services as well. Tamy even offers its international members a few services that are intended especially for them: the English-language mailing list IS-list with all the important information about studies, events and parties and the Starting Kit, a kitchenware set international students can rent for a €20 fee. When the kit is returned clean and undamaged, €17 is given back. Tamy even borrows skates and sleds if you want to give Finnish winter sports a try!
