Congratulations on your study place at TAMK and welcome to start your study years!
So, what to do next? Here is a checklist, take a look!
2. Join the Students’ Union Tamko
If you want, you can join Tamko and order student card from our here.
Also download Tuudo-app to get the mobile student card!
3. Get yourself an apartment!
Good places to look for a apartment are for example:
Check out Opiskelijan Tampere website where you can find available apartments for rent. You can also look for a roommate from there! https://www.opiskelijantampere.fi/en/4/apartments/
4. Apply for study grant and general housing allowance from Kela
Study grant: https://www.kela.fi/web/en/financial-aid-for-students-study-grand
General housing allowance https://www.kela.fi/web/en/general-housing-allowance
5. Pay the healthcare fee for students in higher education
All degree students registered present are allowed to use the healthcare services provided by the Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS). As you are entitled to use the healthcare services by FSHS, you must pay a healthcare fee to Kela. Students pay the healthcare fee twice a year, once for autumn and once for spring semester.
The due date for the healthcare fee in the autumn semester is 30.9. so it is easy to pay it right away.
6. Activate your TUNI-account
