"See the other side" at the Tampere – St Petersburg Summer School!

What is actually going on in Russia these days? This course will present some of the political, economic, social, technical and legal aspects of Russia today, as well as Finland-Russian interfaces in Tampere, Finland's second-largest city.

We will take a visa-free boat trip to St Petersburg, the Venice of the North, so you can see for yourself what is going on in Russia!

The course will include a pre-course assignment, lectures, small-group work and projects.

The team members will work together on common goals, meet regularly and have clearly defined roles and responsibilities.
