1. Enroll for International Tutoring 4.3. - 27.3.2019

Next autumn there will be a lot of new exchange students coming to TAMK. Would you like to be here welcoming them? Now it's time to register for the international tutor trainings and be a part of Tamko's big happy tutoring family. International tutors are helping our incoming exchange students. They take care that exchange students adapt to TAMK and Finnish student life. International tutoring will give you a bunch of nice experiences and improve your language skills.

Student's Union Tamko will train new international tutors on Wednesday 10th of April and Tuesday 16th of April. There will be coffee and sandwiches served in the trainings. International tutoring also adds up your ECTS credits. When the course is done, you'll also get an extra point when applying to exchange studies. You'll also get a mark to your Tursaspassi Passport when enrolling for the trainings.

You can register here.
