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.

2. Blood donation at TAMK 26 March 

It is time to reach out your helping hand again when Finnish Red Cross's Blood Service comes to TAMK. Come to the Main Campus' B lobby on Tuesday, 26th March at 11:00 - 15:00.

The event is accessible as you can get there by using the elevator. 

You can check your suitability as a donor from here.  Please remember to take your ID with you as your student card is not sufficient enough. Note that you will also need a Finnish social security number in order to donate.

5. Participate and have your say: ECAR 2019

In order to get more information about what our students expect from digitalization, TAMK is participating in the global ECAR Survey. Information collected through this survey will provide us with a picture of development needs of the university’s future learning environments and tools. 

Information collected via this survey will contribute to the creating of the learning environments and student IT-services. It also provides us the possibility to compare universities on a national and a global level. Survey link.

Data collection period: 11.-31.3.2019. Web-based survey is anonymous and in English. Answering will take approx. 10-15 minutes to complete. Be sure to participate and have your say!

Should you have any questions, please contact: sanna.sintonen(at) More information about the ECAR survey.
