1. Council election's nomination of candidates has started!

TAMK has over 10 000 students and these students are represented by Students' Union of Tampere University of Applied Sciences, in short Tamko. The way how Tamko represents the students is decided by its highest decision making body, the council. Council is consisted by a chairperson and 20 representatives, and now you can be one of them! 

All Tamko members who are eligible to vote can stand for a nomination. Council's working language is Finnish. The nomination of candidates starts on Wednesday 12 September at 9.00 and ends on Wednesday 10 October 2018 at 12.00. Every nominee candidate needs to fill out an application form. Applications are available at tamko.fi -website as an e-form and as paper forms at Tamko's office Solu. 

The electoral system used is called as the proportional representation in which multiple candidates are elected through allocations to an electoral list. So find a list that represents you, or if there is none, you can establish a new list. More info about the council elections can be found from Tamko's website

  • Buss from Tampere - Helsinki - Tampere (departure from Tampere around 1.45pm). 
  • Boat trip Helsinki - Tallinn and accommodation in 2 person cabin (MS Silja Europa)
  • Hotel night in Tallinn in 2 person room (16 October - 17 October night, breakfast included)
  • Boat trip Tallinn - Helsinki with place on a deck (MS Silja Europe). (Return to Tampere around 7pm). 

Whole price for this trip is just 80€ (for Tamko members, non-members 100€). So gather up your mates and register quickly to this trip! You can register here. The registration is binding. The trip must be paid before the departure. 



7. Cirque De La Medicine 18 September

Health care students from TAMK come together with med students from UTA, to have a pub crawl to remember and an after party that will most probably give you a hangover. 

Here's how it works:

Purchase a ticket from the closest office or booth and spend that student loan by buying tickets for friends too. Then come to Koskenranta on September 18th 5pm sharp. Your ticket acts as your "passport" in which you collect stamps from bars mentioned on it - by collecting at least 6 stamps, you will earn a Cirque patch, which you can then sew on your overalls by using the correct and the most aseptic technique.

More information on the event page.

Ticket: 4€ (5 tickets/person). Sponsored by Grr8t Sports, Kaalimato, RedBull and Catapult Cat
