Degree tutors are helping out new degree students of TAMK. They are playing an important part in integrating new students to Tampere and Finland.

All the applicants will be interviewed during the autumn and the trainings will take place on the spring semester 2023. Tutors will gain new friendships and study credits: sounds like a great deal, huh?
