Learning outcomes

Upon successful completion of the course, students will know the foundations of Finnish pronunciation and the most common core vocabulary. In addition, they will be able to use and understand short and simply structured Finnish expressions that concern some of the most common everyday matters (introducing themselves, buying and paying, telling the time, food, asking and answering questions, location and moving around).

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.

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