In case you have a valid reason why you cannot physically join your study group at TAMK for the orientation days, please contact the TAMK Welcome Team or your Study Counsellor well in advance (see contact information at the end of this page) and explain why you cannot attend and ask for further instructions.

Checking of Original Certificates

Checking your original school certificates, work certificates, and other official documents will be extended until you are able to be physically present on campus. Student selection is always conditional until the originals have been compared with the ones sent in the application stage.

Curriculum

Take a closer look at your curriculum to better understand your study and learning goals. The individual descriptions of courses include for example course content, the timing of the course within the academic year, evaluation criteria.

The curriculum information is especially important if you wish to transfer credits for some previously completed higher education studies. You can start discussions about credit transfer with the Head of Programme or with your Study Counsellor during the Orientation Days. If you have questions about accreditation and credit transfer, please send an email ahead of time to avoid the rush during the orientation.
