TAMK roadshowing again in St Petersburg

TAMK participated in the ICIEP International Education Fair in St Petersburg, Russia on Sunday 10 October. TAMK shared its stand with the other two universities located in Tampere, University of Tampere and Tampere University of Technology. This was the second time TAMK attended an education fair this autumn, the previous time having been also in St Petersburg in September.

The densely populated St Petersburg area is within easy reach from Finland, and offers a great potential for student recruitment to Finnish higher education institutions. The Russian fair visitors did often mention the extra bonus that Finland offers with its high-quality education and attractive location. According to the preliminary estimations, the number of visitors to the ICIEP Fair this time exceeded the last year number of ca 3.500 visitors.

The five bachelor’s programmes conducted in English at TAMK caught the eye of the fair goers, and many were happily surprised to learn that TAMK would organise entrance exams for the Degree Programmes in International Business, Environmental Engineering and Tourism in St Petersburg, too. Those who fill in the electronic application form by 15 February 2011 and send the required attachments by the due-date will be invited to the entrance exams that will be held in Tampere in late April and early May depending on the degree programme, and in a number of locations outside Finland in mid-April 2011.
