Topical studies are the subjects that define the focus of your studies. Your choice of topical studies in your bachelor's degree also defines to a large extent what you will be studying in your master's degree. Topical studies include at least 30 credits of courses, but you can take more if you have the interest, and your degree doesn’t get too bloated. In your master's degree, you also have the option to take extended topical studies, which include 50 credits, and in that case you don’t need to take a minor into your master's degree.
During your bachelor's degree you have the choice of five fields of topical studies:
In your master's degree, you can continue to these majors
You can find more information about topical studies and other courses from the study guide in intra You can also ask the study advisor if anything was left unclear.
In addition to that Tampere university offers a wide selection of elective studies, and you may choose any elective the university offers. You must take at least 20 credits of electives in your degree, and you can read about your options for electives from intra or your study guide. You can also ask about electives from the study advisor, as long as you remember that there is no right answer for the choice of elective studies.

The student representatives of the administration (more familiarly hallopeds) represent the views of the students and participate in the development and decision-making of the university. Advocacy takes place at many different levels. Student representation is important because the most up-to-date views on the pain points of studying and how to streamline them can often be found in students. In addition to this, it is important that the voice of the students is also heard along the broad lines. The Student Union appoints hallopeds. The hallopedic season is two years, but you can often get involved in the middle of the season through supplementary applications!
