5. Friend Programme for international students and local friends

• Do you want to learn about other languages, cultures and people from other countries?
• Do you want to learn or tell about Finnish language, culture, its people, nature and habits?
• Do you want to get a friend from another country and origin?
• Do you want to be more international and have multicultural activities in your life?

If you answered yes to these questions, this friend programme is something worth committing and participating!

You may participate in the Friend Programme if you are a local individual or family living in Pirkanmaa or an international student studying in TAMK. The most important criteria is that you open-minded and willing to meet people from other cultures.

The Friend Programme is a model through which local individuals and families and TAMK’s international students can meet and become friends. Getting to know the regular Finnish way of life – in it’s smallest nuances and peculiarities – will help students feel more at home here.

6. FSHS: Information about HealthStart survey

The students who started their studies last fall have recently received HealthStart, a health survey for first-year students.

Normally, after completing the survey for first-year students, the student may be referred for health promotion services provided by the FSHS or offered an appointment.

Unfortunately, the situation at FSHS is now congested. Therefore, we ask the students to wait patiently for us to process the answers. There is no need to call the FSHS in connection with the health survey. Thank you for your understanding
