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 early August 2020. More information will be provided through the 2020 cohort facebook page and by 8 August 2020.
The first intensive week will be held fully online with the Zoom conferencing tool. It will take place from the 17 August to 21 August 2020. Each day will start at 9.00 am Finnish time (Eastern European Summer time, EET, UTC+3) and end at 5.00 pm with some breaks in between. Please reserve these dates fully and try to organise a place and suitable conditions in which you can be fully present online and focus on learning with your new MEL colleagues.
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.
Orientation Programme (to be published later)
Original certificate verification
Student selection is always conditional until the original school leaving certificates, previous degrees and dipplomas and work certificates have been compared with the ones sent in the application stage. (to be further instructed since the first intensive week is online only).
You're welcome to join the Facebook group for the 2020 cohort at: MEL20
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 (link below). If you have questions about accreditation, it’s best to send email ahead of time to avoid the rush during orientation.
Accommodation in Tampere
TAMK has an agreement with Norlandia Tampere Hotel near campus and students can book accommodation at a discount rate. When reserving a room, inform the hotel that you are studying at TAMK and request our contract price.
