Preparatory language studies

Every year, TAMK arranges preparatory “bridging” courses in English and Swedish for students whose skill level in one or both of these languages is lower than the level required to start the compulsory language courses for their particular degree programme. The aim is thus to bridge the gap between the student’s current level and the target level. For Swedish, the target skill level is A2–B1 on the Common European Framework for Languages (CEF); for English, B1.2–B2.1 on the CEF. Preparatory language courses belong to elective studies.

The list below shows the preparatory language courses offered in 2018. Online courses are grouped separately. Preparatory language courses are aimed at all students regardless of their field. Please note that all preparatory courses are organised partly in Finnish. More detailed information (e.g. the course schedule) can be accessed through TAMK ECTS Study Guide. Students can enroll in the courses using Pakki.

All the courses listed on this page are preparatory courses despite the name, also online courses.
