TAMK Global Education - Our Success Stories

At TAMK Global Education, we take pride in meeting - and even exceeding - the expectations of our students and partners. Take a look at what we have done so far, and what people have said about our courses and services!

Our story

Finnish education is widely known all over the world. The Global Education department at TAMK is our answer to the high demand to learn about the success factors and reasons behind this phenomenon. We have been delivering cost-covering education related services to our global partners since 2010, always serving the local needs of our customers. Working in an international environment and being able to serve and deliver Finnish education services in several contexts and languages keeps us busy.

Our first cooperation cases were student camps for engineering students from the Sultanate of Oman during the beautiful Finnish summer months. Since then, our Global Education team has grown from a tiny two-person department to a six-person team in just a few years. We have been delivering education programmes from various fields to countries like Brazil, Egypt and China. Nowadays we have three full time degree programmes running in two different countries.

Our focus is on activating teaching methods, student-centered learning and innovative learning environments and tools. We aim to create a new educational culture with alternative models for evaluation and pedagogical leadership. The local success stories we have helped to create are the reason why we work in education. All of us love what we do, as we believe that education is the key to a better world for all.

Korean student group

Korean student of our Nordic Star Student Camp on Interior Design and Architecture:

“All professors emphasized that it was not a vertical relationship with the professors, so we had to ask freely and say our opinions. So I was able to listen to the class without hesitation.”

Brazilian teachers

Brazilian student of our Teachers for the Future programme:

"I have had the opportunity to spend 5 months studying in Finland and it is not an exaggeration: the programme has changed my professional life. As a teacher, I had the opportunity to reflect on my posture both inside and outside the classroom. It was hard but absolutely important to rethink my practice, to discuss with intelligent and well-prepared teachers, to have doubts."

Korean student

Korean student of our Nordic Star Camp on Interior Design:

"It was a short experience, but I was happy and grateful for all the moments at TAMK. With the help of many coaches, I could learn many things and have a variety of experience that I really needed and wanted to know. I really miss you and want to visit TAMK again."


Chinese student of our tailor-made Professional Teacher Training Programme:

" I spent 3 months studying at TAMK. As a teacher, I had the opportunity to observe classes, study pedagogy, attend seminars, visit local companies and educational institutions and discuss with TAMK's experienced lecturers, of course. As a student, I enjoyed a simple and happy life in Finland: healthy campus lunch, comfortable learning environment, convenient facilities, friendly staff and teachers, and the opportunity to participate in various events and hobby clubs! I participated in the annual Innoevent and worked on a project for Kone with my team. After a week’s hard teamwork, we won a prize of 1000 €! That’s definitely one of the best memories from Finland!"
