The most Caring Community – AhlmanEdu


Learn or develop your skills, enjoy local food or relax in a great setting.

All this right in downtown Tampere city.




Study for a job or improve your skills! You can study for a full degree or parts of a degree, develop your skills through courses or year-long study.

You must be at least 18 years old when you apply to study with us. You can apply for vocational training on a continuous basis and individual study paths allow for flexible start and completion. You can apply for the year-long folk high school courses starting in autumn, in the and in summer.


As studies are mainly in Finnish, applicants are required to have basic Finnish language skills.


Apprenticeships are available for all vocational qualifications offered by AhlmanEdus. Shorter studies, such as partial degrees, can also be completed through an apprenticeship.

In an apprenticeship, most of the learning takes place on the job. Training at AhlmanEdu complements on-the-job learning.



In Tampere, tasty local food is served in the 120-seat Kapusta restaurant. Kapusta operates as a lunch restaurant on weekdays and as an on demand restaurant in the evenings and at on  weekends.


Ahlman’s Tilapuoti/Farm Shop and café offer a varying selection of farm products, warm dishes from the bakery and a selection of local small producers.


Meetings and parties are no problem at the Kartano/Manor house and our other facilities.


You can order the student services through Osuuskunta Luonnoste.
