Our beautiful natural campus is home to a lively multidisciplinary research university – an open and collaborative community whose 2,600 experts and 15,000 students seek answers to the pivotal questions of tomorrow. 

It was here, in 1863, that Finnish-language teacher education began. Since then, the pluralist dialogue between research, education and society has been our driving force.

We cherish the balance of research and education and promote open thinking – we kindle the skills, knowledge and passion to live wisely for the best of humanity.
