You must fill a separate application form for each programme you apply for. The application forms are accessible from the programme webpages. The application forms are filled in through studyinfo.fi portal and all applications are preprocessed by University Admissions Finland (UAF).
The online application form includes a CV and a motivation letter. On the form you must also provide a description of the grading scale used in your Bachelor’s studies and a direct link to a website where the scale can be verified. If there is no official website where the information on the grading scale can be verified, the information should be included in the transcript of records. If it is not, a separate official document describing the grading scale is required. The document should be issued and officially certified by the awarding institution, or compiled by the applicant and officially certified by the awarding institution. In addition to the aforementioned information you must indicate your intended source of funding.
We do not require enclosed letters of recommendation. However, you must give in the online application form the names and contact information of two (preferably academic) persons who know your academic achievements and have promised to answer our queries about you.
As we have applicants with very different academic backgrounds, we ask you to list in the online application form how many teaching hours you have studied your major subject and your minor subjects. If your study transcript gives ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits, please mention this in the online application form. No listing of hours is in this case needed.
If you apply to more than one international Master’s degree programme in the University of Tampere in the 2016 application round, you must indicate in the online application form their order of preference. In case you would be ranked among the top applicants in more than one of the programmes you have applied for, you will be offered a study place in the programme you have placed highest.
Please do not send original certificates, diplomas, etc. which cannot be replaced. Application documents will not be returned. The copies must be officially certified (attested) copies issued by the awarding institution or attested photocopies certified by a Notary Public. Copies of copies will not be accepted.

In addition to the standard document requirements, there are specific requirements for educational documents from certain countries.

If you have submitted an application in a previous application round, please notice that you will need to submit the required application documents again. If you apply for more than one programme, you must submit separate applications and enclosures for each programme.
