International elements in a degree

A degree that includes international elements is competitive in the job market. Internationalisation provides you with a more distinct profile and distinguishes you from other jobseekers.

The aim at the University of Tampere is to provide students with the opportunity to explore international opportunities and highlight international expertise in their degrees. You can incorporate an internationalisation module in your degree and request a mobility certificate for your exchange and internship periods from the Registrar’s Office. By completing the internationalisation module, you will gain skills in inter-cultural communication, understanding of the themes of your field on a global level, and the ability to examine things from a variety of perspectives in actual employment. The mobility certificate, on the other hand, will be useful when looking for employment because it enables you to provide proof of all mobility periods completed during your studies (exchange and internship periods) in a single document.
