Student discounts and benefits
A valid student card entitles you to three different kinds of student discounts and benefits: general, Opiskelijan Tampere benefits and specific benefits offered to Tamy’s members.
General student benefits
The basic degree (Bachelor’s and Master’s degree) student’s blue student card entitles you to different nationally agreed discounts and benefits, which are introduced briefly below. These do not apply to post-graduate (doctoral) students.
- Your student card entitles you to the Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS) The FSHS offers health care, mental health and oral health services at an affordable price. The public health nurse, GP and laboratory tests are free of charge, as are first year students’ first health examination and dentist appointment.
- A student card with a valid annual registration sticker gets you a 45–55% discount on train journeys (VR) as well as over 60 km bus trips (Matkahuolto). Tampere Regional Transport Nysse offers discounts to students on the single bus trip ticket and the 30 day travel card.
- The student card entitles you to affordable meals in the University’s restaurants and other student restaurants within the meal subsidy programme (search for subsidized restaurants on the Social Insurance Institution (Kela) website). You can also charge prepaid Juvenes meals on your student card to get an additional discount on your meals.
Opiskelijan Tampere benefits
In the Tampere region, student benefits for university students are negotiated by Opiskelijan Tampere. You can find alphabetized and categorized lists of hundreds of benefits and discounts on their website. Most of these benefits apply to post-graduate students also.
