3. TAMK summer studies fair 10 March

Thinking about summer studies? Come explore the possibilities offered by TAMK at the summer studies fair on 10.3.2020 between 10am – 1pm at the lobby between the C-wing café ad the Festival Hall!

There are many options available to all TAMK students. You can find a range of different courses from Tampere Summer School and TAMK’s own summer study offerings which are excellent additions to your degree and professional skills and capabilities.

CampusOnline allows students to choose from courses offered by many universities of applied sciences and study them throughout the year, free of charge. Courses taken at CampusOnline can also be included in your degree. TAMK’s career services will be at the fair to talk about summer traineeship/internship possibilities, and the Living Lab and Y-kampus Innovation challenges are offering hands-on project studies during the summer.

Of course, there are other things related to a student’s summer; TOAS, POAS and Kela will be present at the fair to give advice on their particular areas. You can ask the Kela representative about most Kela-related business that you might need help with, aside from summer-related topics.

Come have a chat about your summer and find the right summer study course or project for yourself! More information: Johannes Paavola, johannes.paavola(at)tuni.fi
