First exchange students are arriving!

The first bunch of new exchange students is arriving during this week. About 50 students are going to start Summer Schools on next Monday. 

Two of the Summers Schools will take place in TAMK: Erasmus Intensive Language Course and North-South-South Summer School. In addition, a group of TAMK exchange and degree students will participate in Summer School organized by SITR cooperation (Studying in Tampere Region). The topic of the Summer Schools is the same: Finnish language and culture.

Yasar is having a walk around TAMK main campus

One of the early birds is Erasmus student Yasar Ismet Demiröz from Ege University, Turkey. He’s going to do studies in Environmental and Construction Engineering in TAMK for the academic year 2012-2013. For Yasar, the Erasmus exchange in Finland is a dream come true. He says that if he wasn’t accepted to Finland, he wouldn’t have gone for exchange at all. One of the reasons to choose Finland, is his dear hobby orienteering. Through orienteering he has already met Finnish people who he had found lovely and nice persons.  Finland also offers good possibilities to do orienteering and other nature activities. 

The first impression of Finland is really positive to Yasar. He appreciates the fact that everything is so well organized in Finland. Also the calmness and silence fascinates him. We wish all the best for Yasar with his studies!

We also warmly welcome all the arriving exchange students and new degree students to TAMK!
