In international rankings of education systems, the Finnish system is TOP of the class! It was ranked best in the world in 2012 (the Learning Curve, Pearsons). Finnish higher educational institutions are mainly funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture, and the quality of teaching is overseen carefully. Higher education institutions react to the needs of the society, business and industry in their curricula and teaching. A lot of effort is put into study counselling, and students are guided through their studies by teachers, tutors and student counselors. The high standard of educational facilities and learning environments support student motivation and the effectiveness of the study process.

At TAMK we are proud to be a member of the Tampere Universities community together with the local research university. In education we embrace both the academic and the professional, by bringing together the very people who build society and keep it running from day to day. With our unique combination of a traditional research-intensive university (Tampere University) and a professionally oriented university of applied sciences (TAMK), we can provide holistic solutions from basic studies to rigorous scientific research.
