TAMK

Due to the unknown COVID-19 situation in Autumn 2020, TAMK is making contingency plans to support international students who may not be able to be in Tampere to start their studies when mandatory orientation studies are to start. 

Bachelor's degrees

  • Entrepreneurship and Team Leadership : Start online with the students still abroad with the full course load planned for autumn 2020.
  • Environmental Engineering :  Start online with the students still abroad with 85-100% of the courses planned for autumn 2020. Courses that cannot be completed online will be rescheduled.
  • International Business :  Start online with the students still abroad with the full course load planned for autumn 2020. 
  • Media and Arts : Start online with the students still abroad with most of the courses planned for autumn 2020. Courses that require attendance on campus will be rescheduled for the end of the year.
  • Nursing : No distance learning possibility, as clinical training will be on campus or in clinical settings in the community. Contingencies will be considered on a case-by-case basis if necessary.
  • Software Engineering : Start online with the students still abroad with the full course load planned for autumn 2020. Rescheduling and a staggered start are options. 

Master's degrees

  • Educational Leadership : First intensive week will be fully online. Students must be present on campus for the second intensive week in January 2021 to continue studies. 
  • International Business Management : Contact dates for autumn 2020 are online with the students still abroad. Students must be present on campus from January 2021 onwards to continue studies. 
  • Risk Management and Circular Economy : First intensive week can be fully online. Students must be present on campus for the second intensive week in January 2021 to continue studies.
  • Screenwriting : Start online with the students still abroad with a 15 credit course load for autumn 2020.

We will provide support and inform student groups directly once more detailed information is available during summer and early autumn 2020. We ask that all students keep TAMK informed about their arrival plans and residence permit situation along the way. 

Questions about arrival and residence permit should be sent to the TAMK Welcome Team

Questions about courses and accreditation should be sent to study counsellors (link below)
