Elective (also known as free-choice) language studies are arranged at TAMK every year, in line with the approved language programme. Students can include 5-15 credit points of elective language study in their personal study plan; the maximum amount varies from one degree programme to another.
Every year, a number of TAMK students participate in exchange studies in countries whose language is not taught at TAMK. In these cases, TAMK’s International Services Department will provide financial support for these students to study the language elsewhere.
The list below shows all the elective language and communication courses offered in English this year. Also preparatory language courses belong to elective studies, but they are listed on their own, separate page. For more information, see TAMK ECTS Study Guide. Students can enroll in the courses using Pakki.
In addition to TAMK course offer, you can also search for elective courses from Tampere University Service for Cross-Institutional Studies and through CampusOnline.fi, which offers online courses provided by different universities of applied sciences. Courses found through these services are freely available for TAMK students.
The elective language studies taught in other languages than English can be found in the Finnish version of this page (choose the language using the navigation pane on the right).
