Language requirements

Michigan Technological University and The University of Oregon usually do not require a TOEFL test from students of the University of Tampere, if the applicants can otherwise demonstrate a good command of English. Depending on the applicant's field of study, a GRE or GMAT test may however be required depending on the field and level of study. Test scores are not yet required during this application period but those nominated for an exchange may submit them later.

Successful applicants are exempted from paying tuition fees at the host university but are responsible for covering their own accommodation and living costs. Students selected to the exchange programmes receive a travel grant from the University of Tampere.

Applicants fill in an electronic application at

In addition, students enrolled in Master's degree programmes (the separate two-year Master's programmes, not ‘ordinary' Master's degrees)  should enclose a statement from a supervisor of her/his Master's thesis in which the supervisor supports the student's application to the given host university.
