1. Enroll now for international tutoring!

You can now enroll for international tutoring on 7 October – 3 November 2019. International tutors are helping out new exchange students of TAMK. You can enroll here.
International tutor trainings will be held on 20 November and 28 November at 5pm at auditorium G00-10. Coffee and sandwiches will be served in the trainings!

International tutoring is a great way to network and get new friends from around the world. You’ll get an extra point from international tutoring if you’re going to study abroad as an exchange student yourself. First year students are also warmly welcomed to enroll!

Ps. Enrolling for degree tutoring will open later in October, so keep an eye on our messages!

5. SOPU goes to sauna and swimming 30 October

Wondering how to regain energy as evenings are getting darker and colder? Sauna and lake are the cure! Join SOPU for sauna in Rauhaniemi public sauna, where you have the opportunity to swim in refreshing waters of Näsijärvi lake.

There are two saunas in Rauhaniemi, which both are open to all genders. Dressing rooms are separated between women and men. You wear a bathing suit to the sauna. If swimming in cold water is not your cup of tea, you can just cool off outside. There is a grill at the sauna so you can bring your own sausages if you wish.

We will meet outside the ticket booth at 5pm, but you can also join us later. The entry fee is 7€. Students from TAMK, UTA, and TUT are welcome.
