Social programme

Tampere Summer School arranges social events and free-time activities to help students get to know each other as well as the city of Tampere and the Finnish way of life.

Most events are organised twice in order to enable participation for as many Summer School students as possible.

Some events are free of charge for Summer School students, some for extra cost. All Social Programme fees are non-refundable. 

Enrolment is required for all activities and events. Admitted students will receive enrolment instructions in advance.
