Canoeing on Lake Pyhäjärvi

I enjoyed UTA Summer School a lot in sunny bright weather in August 2015. I would highly recommend it. UTA has great facilities for international students as well. It was very interesting to learn from very experienced teachers and participants from different backgrounds and countries. Kiitos!

The best thing was that I could meet a lot of friends coming from all over the world. We studied together in classes, had lunch and participated in many social programs. I experienced many finnish cultural activities like sauna with them even only for two weeks. It was a precious experience. Thank you!

UTA Summer School offered a quick and easy way to study some important subjects and obtain credits. As a degree student, it also allowed me to get back into the routine after the summer break. Equally good, if not better, was meeting a variety of different people and making new friends!

I really enjoyed learning in a relaxed atmosphere, meeting other people from many countries doing different things and getting to know the University of Tampere before the hustle and bustle of term time as an international degree student began.

It was a great experience, which gave me the chance to meet people and meet friends from all over the world, apart from enjoying of the wonderful Finnish summer, culture, nature and Finland itself. It will be definitely one of those experiences that I'll never forget in my life. Thanks UTA Summer School for making all this possible!

As a new international student of UTA I chose to apply for summer school as I saw it being an opportunity to familiarize myself with the university. This would have made it easier for me to find my way around when my master’s classes started. In the beginning I was uncertain on the whether I will be able to grasp a semester coursework in two weeks but it all turned out fine and we even had enough time to do practical work, assignments and group projects. I would highly recommend summer school especially for international students not only for the reasons I have mentioned above but also to be able to earn extra credits that will be summed up on your degree.
