A good command of English for academic purposes is required for all degree programmes offered by the University of Tampere. We accept the following tests as a proof of a good command of English:
Applicants who have taken their Bachelor studies and obtained their Bachelor's degree in English in one of the following countries are exempt from the language test: Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. In addition, in Master's Programme in Peace, Mediation and Conflict Research, also a degree taken in English in one of the Nordic countries or Finland is accepted as a proof of English proficiency.
Some of the programmes may have slightly different language proficiency requirements, please read carefully each programme description and follow the link to the website of the programme to check the details.
Submitting test scores
It is always the applicant’s responsibility to make testing arrangements for her/himself and to make sure the test results are delivered on time. Be advised that it may take several weeks before the test results are published, and thus we recommend you to book your test well in advance.
All language test results must arrive at University Admissions Finland (UAF) by the given application deadline (address: University Admissions Finland, Yliopistonkatu 2, FI-00170 Helsinki, Finland).
If you are applying to more than one programme and you wish to verify your language skills to all of them with the same language test, University Admissions Finland needs to receive the test results only once.
For those applying for a Doctoral programme, the instructions for submitting test scores are different, please see the website of the University of Tampere Doctoral School.
