There are plenty of exchange opportunities available all over Europe for UTA students. More information on the options is provided below.

Browse UTA exchange destinations in Mobility-Online portal. Select Erasmus Student Mobility, Norplus or Bilateral Agreement as the exchange programme to see the exchange destinations in Europe.

Erasmus+ Programme

Would you like to spend the autumn in Prague or a semester in Madrid? You can experience European universities through the Erasmus+ programme.

The faculties of the University of Tampere have signed field-specific Erasmus agreements within their degree programmes. Always check possible field-specific limitations and selection criteria with the respective mobility coordinator.


You can apply for exchange to Russia via the bilateral exchange agreements of the UTA.

In Russia, studies are primarily offered in Russian, but some partner universities also provide courses in English. A student going on exchange in Russia should know at least a little Russian even if the studies are provided in English.
