Give feedback

Student feedback forms an important part of Tampere University of Applied Sciences' quality management, assessment and feedback system. Feedback is used for development of TAMK’s teaching, courses, education and related services. Course feedback is collected on every course implementation. You can find the feedback link in Pakki. Another ways to give feedback on teacher education are feedback discussions every year and the career monitoring survey, which is sent to students who have graduated about two years earlier.
