Courses for exchange students at Tampere University of Applied Sciences

Although the three higher education institutions in Tampere formed a new community in January 2019, the course selection still follows the former distinction of having three separate universities. In other words, students can not freely select courses from all campuses.

Please note that the Covid-19 pandemic may still affect spring 2023 semester exchanges at TAMK.

You can choose courses from your field of study and from free-elective courses. Please use Online Learning Agreement for your exchange studies. The learning agreement is preliminary until confirmed with your TAMK coordinator after you have started your exchange.

NB! Students applying for Media & Art studies: The structure of the studies includes 13 minor modules (30 cr.) and the incoming student should choose only ONE minor per each semester.

Spring 2023 minors: Moving Image, Live Event Production and Technology, Sound Design, Visual Design, Web and App Design and Development, Cultural Export, and Emerging Media Production.
