It is our pleasure to invite our international partners to participate in this event in Tampere, Finland. The International Week will offer the participants a chance to teach students of TAMK and meet colleagues of the same field of study from TAMK and the participating universities.

Programme

The International Week for Biomedical Laboratory Sciences and Laboratory Engineering offers the international participants and the students and staff of TAMK a great variety of activities:

Academic: You are invited to give classes to the TAMK students and to experience the learning environment of your partner university. The minimum number of teaching hours is 2 x 45 min to the engineering students who may come from a Degree Programme conducted in Finnish or in English. All the guest lectures will be given in English, and they are grouped in 90 or 135-minute packages.

The number of students in each lecture will vary from ca 20 to 60. All the students are at undergraduate level, ie they are on their 1st - 4th year in a Bachelor's Degree Programme in Biomedical Laboratory Sciences and Laboratory Engineering.

Information: The participants will be given an update on the latest developments at TAMK, and those who will visit Tampere University of Applied Sciences for the first time will get an overview of our facilities. One or several company visits will highlight the different ways of learning of TAMK.

Networking and Socialising: The social programme will help you meet informally with colleagues from different countries and institutions of higher education. The get-togethers will enable the participants to share common interests and to network in a relaxed atmosphere. The outdoor activities will offer a unique opportunity to experience the Nordic winter.
