The Get Stuff Done! -sessions utilise the Pomodoro study technique. If the technique is not familiar to you, don’t worry, as we will introduce its basics at the start of each session. In the sessions, you will study independently with a staff member timing your work and breaks. You can come along to, for example, read for an exam, write your study diary, do research for a thesis or compose an essay.
The sessions are open to all students from Tampere University and TAMK. The meetings are bilingual.
If you are coming to the sessions to write, we recommend you explore the Language Centre's 'Write now' -Moodle area in advance. The Moodle contains information on establishing writing goals and gives other advice on writing, as well. The study sessions are consequently a good place to take the Moodle's lessons into practice.
The study sessions are held four times a week (Mon-Thu). The Monday and Thursday sessions are organised by Aalto University and University of Helsinki, respectively. Nevertheless, they follow a similar approach to our Get Stuff Done! -meetings. Please note that the Aalto and Uni. Helsinki sessions have their own Zoom links. All students are welcome to join any of the four weekly sessions. Their schedule is as follows:
- Mondays 10.00-11.30 (Aalto University, titled Thesis & Tomatoes). Join the Zoom by clicking this link!

You don't need to sign up for the sessions in advance. Just open the Zoom at the start of the session and you are good to go. Welcome aboard to study efficiently!
