TAMK Student's Handbook

Screenwriting - information for new students

Congratulations – you have been selected in the next intake! You are warmly welcome to join the TAMK community and start building your future. This page has information, guidelines and schedules, which help you in getting started. Please read these instructions carefully.

Start of studies

Studies start on 4th September 2023 at 10.00 on TAMK Mediapolis campus(classroom 30017)

If you need to bring your original certificates with you for verification, you have gotten / you will get a notification about it via email.


Orientation days are not only mandatory for all students, they are the best way to get started. You will see and hear about our facilities and services, meet with everyone in your study group and get to know each other, talk to the key people in building your future: the head of your programme, your tutor teacher, other lecturers, your study counsellor, TAMK social counsellor, student union members and many more.


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

This information is especially important if you wish to accredit some previously completed higher education courses, since you need to propose the substitution and discuss the matter with your resposible teacher.

Course Outline

Here you can see the Course Outline with a lot of details - e.g., list of books to begin with - and how we are going to organize the studies. Please have a look at this site but please notice that changes are still possible.

I hope to see you all in the Orientation Day 4th September and the following days of that week in Mediapolis. Please start thinking of the ideas you wish to write your script!  Maybe 2-3 different from which to choose.

Looking forward to see you!

Mr Ari Koivumäki
