Educational affairs´announcements

In October-November, feedback was requested from new students and annual feedback. Based on these, TAMK will begin the annual programme specific feedback discussions. These discussions involve students and staff discussing the feedback from 2023 and considering measures for educational development. You can find the schedule for the feedback discussions in the social and health care field on the intra! Join us in developing your own degree program <3


If you started your first higher education degree in the spring semester of 2024, please respond to the HealthStart (TerveysStartti) survey on the Self online service. After responding, you will receive feedback on your health status and possible guidance to YTHS services.


Also, remember to pay the YTHS fee by March 15th!

Harassment contacts

All of PIRATE’s events and operation is harassment free. This means that we don’t accept harassment in any form.


If you still experience harassment, we have our own harassment contact, who you can talk to. This year our harassment contacts are Joona and Marianne. They have been trained for the role and they’re obligated to keep everything they are told in secrecy. They will not act on anything you might tell them without your permission.

You can contact Joona or Marianne through the email addresses found in the picture, or come talk to us.
