All students must register for each academic year – either present or absent. Please note that first-year students can only register as absent on statutory grounds specified on our web page.

Notice that the activating of your TUNI-ID is possible just before your right to study is beginning.
Register your Tampere Universities community username before the beginning of your studies. When you have registered for attendance and your information has been transferred to TAMK’s student register, you will receive a link to the username registration by email. The message will be sent from the address firstname.lastname@example.org. You need electronic banking personal identity codes or mobile ID to use the service. Some services do not work until your study right has begun (eg. enrolment on courses).
