Studying in English
As part of the curricula, certain courses in Social work are offered in English, in particular for international exchange students, but also Finnish students interested to study in English. Available courses in English are listed the Teaching Schedules. All the courses available in the School of Social Sciences and Humanities for exchange students are listed under the heading of Studies on Society, Culture and History.
Social work practice placements in Tampere regions necessitate knowledge of Finnish language, and are therefore not an option for most international students. However, making a thesis, or participating in on-going projects in the department, may come into question if agreed upon beforehand.
For support and advise in study matters, international exchange students signed in as Social work students have a named student (peer) tutor and international adviser, at present Ms. Anna Wansén-Kaseva (room 6065, Linna building).
