Study practices

The Finnish system of academic education gives students a lot of freedom to plan and schedule their studies. This means that planning the schedule for the academic year, i.e. choosing the subjects and study modules, matching the times of lectures and keeping the schedule intensive through­out the studies, requires a lot of activity and responsibility on the part of the student. More independence is given also by the free choice of minor subjects and courses from other Schools. If the students meet the prerequisites or pass an initial language test, they are usually free to attend any course they might want.

Information on these pages is designed to explain the most common study practices in the School and the University of Tampere. We have tried to explain especially those practices which might be less familiar to non-Finnish students, be they degree students or exchange students. Still more information can be found on the University's Studies pages, and on the Master's programmes' own web pages.

Students of the Bachelor's programme in Social Sciences can find more information here.
