TAMK Student's Handbook

Professional Teacher Education

Welcome to study at School of Professional Teacher Education 

Congratulations - you are warmly welcome to start your Professional Teacher Education studies!   

On this site you will find information for new teacher students of TAMK selected in 2024. Please read the information below carefully. 


1. Accept your study place  

All students must accept or decline the offered study place. Confirm your study place in My Studyinfo service.  Confirm your study place by 8 April 2024 3pm (Finnish time) OR by the time stated in your personal admission letter. 

TAMK usually has people on the waiting list, so please be polite and do not leave them hanging. Confirmation should be done by using the unique link sent automatically from the Studyinfo service. If you are technically unable to use the link or have trouble completing the confirmation, please contact the TAMK Admissions Services.   

2. Register for first academic year  

All students must register for each academic year – either present or absent. Please note that first-year students can only register as absent on statutory grounds specified on our web page. 

3. Activate your TUNI-ID  (except if you already have tuni-id)

Notice that the activating of your TUNI-ID is possible just before your right to study is beginning.  

Register your Tampere Universities community username before the beginning of your studies. When you have registered for attendance and your information has been transferred to TAMK’s student register, you will receive a link to the username registration by email. The message will be sent from the address it-helpdesk [at] You need electronic banking personal identity codes or mobile ID to use the service. Some services do not work until your study right has begun (eg. enrolment on courses).  NB! If the e-mail doesn't arrive, check your junk mail folder. You can also activate your tuni-id in by yourself.

More information about activating your TUNI-ID and about IT-services can be found from our web page.
