You can participate in an exchange if there is an official agreement between your home university and TAMK. Unfortunately, TAMK does not accept students outside of these agreements (generally known as guest or non-free mover students). If your university does not have an agreement with TAMK, please check with your international office to find out which other universities your university has agreements with or if you would like to develop an agreement with TAMK. If you have not found answers to your questions on these sites, please contact TAMK`s student exchange service: incoming.tamk [at] tuni.fi Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK) welcomes exchange students from international partner universities with which we have a bilateral exchange agreement. All applicants must be officially nominated by their home university for incoming.tamk [at] tuni.fi. Our Erasmus+ code is SF TAMPERE06. The nomination must contain for each student the following information: students who come to TAMK via the Erasmus+ or Nordplus programme also have the opportunity to apply for an accessibility grant. For more information, please contact your Erasmus+ or nordplus coordinator at your home university. If you arrive at TAMK via an agreement other than Erasmus+ or Nordplus, please inquire about the possibility of applying for an accessibility grant from your home university. You are eligible if you are studying as a student at a higher education institution with a valid student exchange agreement (such as Erasmus+, Nordplus, FIRST or bilateral student exchange) with TAMK. Our Erasmus+ code is SF TAMPERE06.
