Most Frequently Asked Questions

Which course I should come to? What is the right level for me?

First, read the course descriptions given below and check the published course materials, for example in the University Library, to get some idea of the contents of the courses. Then you will be better able to decide which course is suitable for you. Of course, the teachers are also willing to help you to choose a proper course.

How many Finnish courses can I take at the same time?

You can choose as many courses as you like according to your interests, schedule and starting level. For example, you can revise your knowledge in Finnish in the elementary courses and widen it in the advanced level courses at the same time, if that suits your plans and abilities.

Must I register for the courses beforehand?

Yes, you must. Read the information.

Can I register by e-mail or by telephone?

Sorry, but no, you can't.

Can I just come to the examinations without attending the courses?

Unfortunately no. (But read also what is said about the elementary and advanced courses in the general advice above.)

How many lessons may I miss without losing the course?

The general rule is that you have to be present for 80 per cent of the contact hours of the course in order to be allowed to attend the examination and to get the credits.

Can I join courses if I am not a regular student of the University of Tampere?

 All Finnish courses are open for the degree and exchange students as well as for the staff of the University of Tampere. Courses are also available at the Open University
