By joining Tamko, you’ll get a student card which is your key to thousands of student discounts in Finland. Tamko offers two kinds of cards (AMK student card and Tamko membership card), so please make sure that you order the right one!

Instructions to filling out the membership application

You can order the student card and fill the membership application here.

  • You’ll need a passport type of photo of yourself in jpg form (size minimum 450×600 pixels, file size max. 1MB). The photo doesn’t need to be an official passport photo, it can also be a full-face selfie with good lighting.
  • You’ll also need information about your study place so that you can answer to the questions.
  • Payment can be made with most common credit cards and internet bank service
  • The student card will arrive to our office approx. 1 – 4 weeks after you’ve sent the application. We will send a message to your TUNI email address (TAMK student email address) when the card has arrived to our office.

NB! If the order interrupts when the online payment page (Paytrail) is already visible, your card will be ordered anyway. In this case, you can make the payment at our office (card or cash payment).

Student card stickers

The student card has a sticker which shows that the student card is valid. There are two kind of stickers: an academic year sticker and term sticker. New members will get their sticker when they fetch their card from our office.

Stickers are valid as follows:
09/2022 (adademic year) black sticker is valid 1.8.2021-30.9.2022

NOTE! By joining the student union, ordering a student card, or extending membership in the union, the student confirms that they have read and accepted terms and conditions of granting the student card and agreed to follow them. In addition, the student accepts that their personal information, contact information, right to study and member eligibility are verified from the student and study registers of Tampere University of Applied Sciences. The student agrees to their membership information being transferred from the register of Tamko to TAMK’s database and onwards to the databases of Finnish National Agency for Education such as Virta and Koski databases. The prospective member of Tamko also consents to their information being transferred to Pivo Wallet Oy to confirm that they are, in fact, a student if the student wishes to make use of the mobile student card. Pivo Wallet Oy will receive the member’s personal information if and only if they activate the mobile student card in the PIVO app, thereby accepting the PIVO app’s terms and conditions.
