Learning outcomes

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to use and understand different kinds of Finnish expressions that concern everyday life. Students will also be able to describe some of the most important things about themselves, their surroundings, studies, plans and other corresponding topics, and understand descriptions given on such topics. In addition, students will be able to understand at least the main points of short and intelligible written texts on familiar themes, and be able to write short descriptions of their own life and brief situations and events.

Enrolment for University Studies

In cases where more students register for a course than space allows, priority is assigned as follows:

1. First priority is given to the degree students of the University of Tampere.
2. Second priority is given to the exchange students of the University of Tampere.
3. Third priority is given to the Tampere3 students and to the high school students of the UTA Teacher Training School.

Also, the grade of the Finnish Elementary Course 3 is considered in the selection.

In addition, there is a quota of 5 for the Open University students in every group.
