TAMK continues roadshowing in Russia

TAMK was busy roadshowing again in St Petersburg. TAMK participated in the ICIEP International Education Fair on Sunday 7 October for the 3rd time, and shared the stand with the other two Tampere universities, University of Tampere and Tampere University of Technology.

At the Study in Tampere stand, the visitors were welcomed by Anna-Maria Viitala and Mikhail Tulin from Tampere University of Technology, Noora Maja from University of Tampere and Riku-Matti Kinnunen from TAMK.

The St Petersburg area with its ca 5 million inhabitants is within easy reach from Finland offering a great potential for student recruitment to Finnish higher education institutions. The Russian fair visitors often brought up the extra bonus that Finland offers with its high-quality education and attractive location. According to the preliminary estimate, the number of visitors to the ICIEP Fair this time exceeded 3.000 visitors.

The four Bachelor’s Degree Programmes conducted in English at TAMK caught the eye of the visitors, and many were surprised to learn that TAMK would organise the entrance exams for the Degree Programmes in International Business and Environmental Engineering in St Petersburg, too.
