Over 50 % rise in applications to TAMK's English degree programmes

Over 50 % rise in applications to TAMK's English degree programmes

The nine English degree programmes starting at TAMK in autumn 2018 received more than 2100 applications in the application round which ended on the 24th of January. In 2017 the corresponding number was a little under 1400. The 56 % increase is a direct result of good foresight in degree offer and success in target marketing.

All degree programmes increased their applicant numbers. Bachelor's degrees in International Business (876 applicants) and Media & Arts (410 applicants) hold their positions among the top draws. The new Master's degree on offer, Risk Management and Circular Economy, gathered a very respectable 74 applications in its first round.

Our new Bachelor's degree in Software Engineering (108 applicants) has even been the talk of the press with its entrance examination held only in Bangladesh. In addition to the host country (75 applicants) it caught the attention of many who plan to travel to Dhaka to take part in the exam from as far as Finland, Spain and the United Kingdom.

Applications for TAMK's English degree programmes starting in the autumn came from both Finland (865 applicants) and from a total of 100 other countries. 

The application round for the degree programmes in Finnish is 14–28 March 2018.
