Tampere - the Smart Focal Point of Northern Europe

30 new media student seats available at Tampere UAS

Where is Tampere? At the edge of the tundra? Why should one bother to move to Tampere to study or to do business?

Top experts from all over the world come to share their insight and
wisdom with our students. Pictured Adam Montandon at MindTrek

Tampere is actually the central spot of Northern Europe. If you draw a circle with a radius of 1000 km including the Baltic sea, Scandinavia, Finland, and northern Russia, your circle will hit the Russian capital Moscow, the Polish capital Warsaw, Rostock in Germany and Hammerfest in northern Norway. And there it is, the centre of this circle, Tampere in Finland.

This 1000 km circle includes more capitals like Copenhagen (distance from Tampere 913 km), Oslo (726 km), Stockholm (394 km), Helsinki (160 km), Tallin (235 km), Riga (505 km), Vilnius (762 km) and Minsk (873 km). St. Petersburg (396 km) is really close.

Tampere is indeed accessible: Direct international flights from and to Alicante, Bremen, Budapest, Copenhagen, Edinburgh, Frankfurth, Kaunas, London, Malaga, Milan, Riga, Rome, Stockholm and Trapani, train from St. Petersburg and Helsinki, ferry + train from Tallin, Stockholm, Gdynia, Travem√ľnde and Rostock.

Tampere is an attractive and international centre for students - there are 200 000 inhabitants and 40 000 students of higher education in three universities. The cultural life is rich, and the city is surrounded by beautiful lakes and forests.
