Educational Leadership - 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 with some pretasks in mid-August 2019. More information will be provided through the 2019 cohort facebook page (setup after group confirmed). The first face-to-face intensive week will start on on Monday 19 August 2019 on TAMK Main Campus (exact location to be published later). The following intensive weeks are 13 – 17 January 2020 and 17 – 21 August 2020.
For the first intensive week, remember to bring with you your official ID and your original certificates for verification.
Intensive weeks 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.
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 Master-level courses, since you need to propose the substitution and discuss the matter with your study counsellor during orientation. If you have questions about accreditation, it’s best to send email ahead of time to avoid the rush during orientation.
