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 Tuesday, August 23 2022 at 11.00 on campus in Tampere, Kuntokatu 3.



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.

A detailed programme for the orientation week, possible restrictions (because of the pandemic) and other information will be updated here before the start of your studies. Please keep coming back!



Take a closer look at your curriculum to better understand your study and learning goals. The better you know the course content the easier it it is for you to start studying. To start with check what courses you will have in your first year.
