1. Do you need some support for your studies? Apply guidance from Peer Coaches!
Would you like to have some support for your studies? Have you transported to TAMK from some other University? Apply guidance from Peer Coaches! There is a new form of peer guidance starting at TAMK this year called Peer Coaching. Coaches are fellow students who have been trained to work as Peer Coaches. They organize both one on one meetings and group meetings. You can apply if you have some issues or if you just want to meet new people or participate example in a study group. Objectives and meeting times will be discussed together with the Coach.
You can apply by filling out this form: http://lomake.tamk.fi/lomakkeet/30816/lomake.html
The applications are handled with confidence. Note that most of the activities are held in Finnish at the moment.
