Support and training

All student ambassadors will receive training for their work as ambassadors. Training sessions are organised in the first half of each academic year. More detailed information will be sent to all selected ambassadors. TAMK will provide all printed and online materials necessary for ambassadors to perform to the best of their ability. We cover student priced travel costs for high school visits and if there is no public transport available the TAMK vehicles can be used as well. Hosting visitors on campus will be supported by a walking map, which you will find unnecessary very soon. TAMK Admissions and Student Recruitment will assist you in any questions that visitors or interested candidates have that you cannot help with! TAMK will invite you to use the Unibuddy platform for discussions with potential applicants, so you do not have to utilise your own social media profiles. We can also support you by monitoring and blocking reported inappropriate messaging.
