TAMK Global Education - Document check and accreditation

Please note that the contents of this page regard only the international student groups coming to Finland through the TAMK Global Education department. The new student information for individual international students can be found here.

In order to prepare for the start of your studies, you also need to get your papers in check. Make sure to gather all your relevant documentation and have it with you when arriving for your orientation.

Document check

Bachelor’s degrees: Have with you all the original upper secondary diplomas you have referred to and attached to your application or sent to TAMK Admissions during or after the application period. If you graduate from outside Finland between conditional acceptance and your studies start in Autumn 2020, please send the documents as soon as they are ready as email attachments and bring originals with you.

Master’s degrees: Have with you all the original Bachelor’s degree documents you have referred to and attached to your application or sent to TAMK Admissions during or after the application period. You have until July 31st to gather the required 36 months of work experience after your Bachelor’s degree. You must provide original documentation on your work experience (company letterhead, signed and stamped) at the orientation.

All documents will be checked by comparing the sent copies to the originals. All student selections are conditional until a reliable match can be made.

Accreditation of previous studies

If you have previous university level studies, you can in some cases present them to the head of your degree programme for evaluation of accreditation. To submit these requests, you should first get acquainted with your curriculum. During your orientation, you will have the opportunity to meet with your study counsellor to formulate a plan for accreditation.

If you have any questions about accreditation or you are unsure which courses could be transferred to TAMK, please contact your study counsellor ahead of time to book an appointment and avoid the rush during orientation week.
