Guests from Sendai, Japan
Today our Finlayson campus had visitors from Japan. Six students from Miyagi University, Sendai, made a tour around the School of Art and Media, followed a presentation about TAMK University of Applied Sciences, saw some films, and of course had a look at the proAcademy.
The students are on a three week study trip in Tampere, hosted by PIRAMK University of Applied Sciences. Miyagi University is one of PIRAMK partner universities, soon also TAMK partner, TAMK and PIRAMK will merge at New Year.
Three of the students study architecture, two business and one graphic design. During the visit they compare Finnish and Japanese architecture, culture and design, they also have assignments related to their field of study.
