It is good to know that you are never alone in your studies. The various student services offered at TAMK can help you in any part of your studying, from your arrival in Tampere all the way to the graduation. The services of TAMK can also help you in other ways: you will need to know the best places to eat, for instance, and where to get your books!
The International Office organises services for outgoing and incoming students and staff. Guidance and information regarding student and trainee exchange and other international matters are also given by the international contact persons within degree programmes.
You can turn to the study secretaries in the study offices on your campus for almost any study-related matter. For example, the study secretaries provide information about student benefits, and take care of transcripts of records, degree certificates and study certificates.
TAMK gives a high priority to developing information technology which serves education and information networks thus in turn benefitting studying. The Internet is used as an information source and as a learning environment. Computer classrooms are well equipped.
All TAMK students get a user account which entitles the student to use workstations, e-mail services and access the Internet, TAMK's Intranet and many other services.
In the Intranet, students can find links to essential IT services like their e-mail, news, student administration system, dictionaries, phone directory, the Moodle learning platform and the TAMK library system.
Students can use any vacant computer in any computer classroom unless teaching is in progress. Students do not have to purchase their own computers; they can use those available at TAMK. There are also printers available and the students are given a free printing quota; the size of this quota depends on the student
Some of TAMK's computer classrooms are available for students in the evenings and during weekends.
According to Finnish legislation all university students have a right to basic student health care services and specialised health care services in Tampere.
TAMK's student health care is organised by the City of Tampere. Basic student health care services include health care, medical treatment and mental health services. Student health services of nurse and psychologist are free of charge. Doctor`s appointment is liable to charge.
Using the specialised health care services is not free, unless the student is a permanent resident in Finland. Therefore, TAMK strongly recommends that every foreign student should obtain personal health insurance. Read more about the health insurance (degree students).
Tampere is a great city for studying! Altogether, there are almost 40000 university students living in Tampere, which makes it one of the biggest university cities in Finland. In fact, almost every fifth person living in Tampere is a student!
Tampere is student-friendly in many ways: there are plenty of free-time activities and sports facilities, and the city bus connections run smoothly day and night. The local student unions, including the Students' Union of TAMK (Tamko), and the Tampere Chamber of Commerce have initiated a project The Students' Tampere, aiming at bringing students and the business life closer to each other. Over 100 local businesses involved in the project give a student discount to students with a valid student card. More information about the project at
