3. Mesi club’s trip to Niihama tomorrow!

Greetings! We’re welcoming you on our trip to enjoy nature, the warmth of a campfire and fun activities on 12th of September! We’re arranging our first little trip from the campus to Niihama Outdoors Cottage, travelling by bike or on foot (15min/1h). Once there, you can pick between relaxed chilling at a sheltered campfire and playful activities by the one in the open air, or do both! You’ll need fitting outdoors clothing, your ticket, optionally a bite to eat, and a good mood!

At the campfire, Mesikerho will provide a bite to eat and activities to do and the ticket is only 2€. You can also purchase café products at the cottage along with a sauna opportunity that costs 6€ (not affiliated with Mesikerho).

You can pose questions via our Instagram or at mesikerho@tamko.fi . Welcome along!

4. Healthcare fee deadline is getting close!

Students in universities and universities of applied sciences who are entitled to use the services of the Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS, Finnish abbreviation YTHS) must pay a healthcare fee to Kela. In 2023, the student healthcare fee in higher education is EUR 36.80 per term. The fee may be paid to Kela for both the spring and the autumn term. You are not billed for the fee, but are expected to pay it unprompted. 

The due dates are determined based on the date on which you have registered as attending. There are four possible due dates in each calendar year. For the autumn term, the due date is 30th of September provided that you have registered as attending by then.

Even birds fly in a flock – Don’t fly solo either!

TAMK Parvi offers wellbeing and support services, peer support, and connecting with others, so that no student would have to leave alone.

All Parvi activities for autumn 2023, both on campus and online, can be found on Parvi’s calendar.

By participating Parvi activities you can also get a stamp to Tursaspassi. Welcome!
