TAMK Student's Handbook

Regular events at the Doctoral School

Tampere University and TAMK


Join us in conversation about doctoral studies and meet with your peers

The Doctoral School organises many events where our doctoral researchers receive information, tools and opportunities for collaboration in research. We cover topical issues related to doctoral studies, research and funding, as well as finding your preferred employment after your doctorate. For example, at our Morning Coffee meetings you get to connect and network with other doctoral researchers. We organise events on campus, online and in combination of the two. See event details from the intranet's event calendar.


Orientation Day

We start each semester with an Orientation Day for our doctoral researchers. During the event, we introduce Tampere University as your research environment. We present the joint course that Doctoral School offers, we share information on research funding, supervision, and the wide range of services available to you. The orientation material (slides and videos) is always available to you on Moodle should you ever need it. The Orientation Day channel in Teams provides you with more information and the link to the online version of the event. The next Orientation Day in English is held in August 30th, 2022. 


Morning Coffee

We arrange Morning Coffee meetings for our doctoral researchers throughout the year. We plan the topics together to best support the everyday work and life of doctoral researcher. At Morning Coffee, the guest speakers, the Doctoral School's staff and your peers discuss current issues in doctoral studies and get to know each other. The event is typically held on a specific Wednesday at 10–11 am. The Morning Coffee channel in Teams provides you with the event details.


Mobility Café – event on international mobility for researchers

We organise yearly an event on international mobility. The experts at Tampere University tell you about possibilities available to you and the support you find for your mobility. You also get to hear the experiences –when to go and how to do it– from your peers. The Mobility Cafe channel in Teams provides you more information on the event and its materials. The next event is held in October 5th, 2022. Read more from the intranet's event calendar.


PhD Supervisors' Coffee

The coffee meetings for supervisors provide a venue for formal and informal discussions on doctoral research. We share the latest trends in PhD supervision and tool for developing transferable skills in doctoral researchers. The meetings are led by exert speakers and provide an opportunity to strengthen one's own and collective support for supervision. The PhD Supervisors' Coffee channel in Teams and the intranet's event calendar tell you more about the up-coming events.
