Content
The basic extent of the programme of Finnish as a Foreign Language is 28 ECTS.
Students can also choose individual courses without completing the whole programme.

Please notice, enrollment always to individual course/courses.

The UTA degree students and Open University students study in same study groups in Tampere. There is a quota of 5 for the Open University students in every group.

Upon successful completion of the elementary-level courses, students will be able to use and understand Finnish in common everyday situations. In addition, they will be able to give and understand accounts about themselves, their families, studies, hobbies and other similar topics.

After successful completion of the advanced-level courses, students will be able to communicate both orally and in written form on various matters that have familiar themes. With the help of a dictionary, students will be able to read texts comparable to standard newspaper language without much difficulty.

The general aim of these studies is to give students a positive attitude both to their language studies and to themselves as language learners, enabling them to develop their language skills further.
