Welcome new exchange students!
TAMK welcomes you to study with us for a semester or two as an exchange student! Find out what you need to take care of before your stay and after you have arrived to Tampere. Please remember to read our application instructions and course information for exchange students. A brief summary of all other important things to remember can be found below.
COVID-19 update: TAMK has made the decision on suspending our incoming student mobility for autumn semester 2020. The difficult decision has been made based on the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation and government restrictions that lead to, among others, uncertain and unequal possibilities in starting the exchange semester at TAMK on time and commencing studies on-site.
Despite the challenging times, we hope to welcome exchange students in Tampere in the spring semester 2021 (January–May 2021). Please contact your home university coordinator about postponing your exchange. Please note that we will expect a new home university nomination and a new application with an updated study plan in autumn 2020 from you. Also, if you need to cancel your exchange, please inform your home coordinator.
