Nursing - information for new students
Congratulations – you have been selected in the next intake! You are warmly welcome to join the TAMK community and start building your future. This page has information, guidelines and schedules, which help you in getting started. Please read these instructions carefully.
Start of studies
Studies start on 25 August 2020 at 08.30 on TAMK Main Campus
On the first day, remember to bring with you your official ID and your original certificates for verification. Student selection is always conditional until the originals have been compared with the ones sent in the application stage. Please also check the vaccination and tuberculosis documentation below.
Orientation days are not only mandatory for all students, they are the best way to get started. You will see and hear about our facilities and services, meet with everyone in your study group and get to know each other, talk to the key people in building your future: the head of your programme, your tutor teacher, other lecturers, your study counsellor, TAMK social counsellor, student union members and many more.
Vaccination and tuberculosis risk
Since professional studies at TAMK start from the very beginning of the degree, you should prepare for your first clinical placements in the field. For this you will need to complete a Tuberculosis self-evaluation and provide our student health care information on your current vaccination coverage. If there is a need to supplement your vaccinations, this can be done at student health care at the beginning of your studies.
Take a closer look at your curriculum to better understand your study and learning goals. The individual descriptions of courses include methods, teachers, timing of the course within the academic year, evaluation criteria and exam types.
This information is especially important if you wish to accredit some previously completed higher education courses, since you need to propose the substitution and discuss the matter with your study counsellor during orientation (link below). If you have questions about accreditation, it’s best to send email ahead of time to avoid the rush during orientation.
