TAMK had 8,467 primary applicants for its 1,705 study places in 39 degree programmes that begin in autumn. Social and health care education was still the most popular. The Bachelor’s Degree Programme in Emergency Care attracted by far the most interest of the programmes in Finnish.
The English degree programmes had fewer applicants but the number of primary applicants remained at almost the same as last year or, in some cases, even grew.

– We are very satisfied with the number of applicants. Regardless of the tuition fee for non- EU/EEA applicants, foreign applicants are interested in our degree programmes, says TAMK’s Head of Communications Services Leena Stenman.
In addition to Finnish applicants, most applications arrived from Bangladesh, Ghana, Nepal, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States and Vietnam.
