The pre-task results for this year's application round at the TAMK Degree Programme in Media and Arts have been sent by letter on Friday the 14th March 2014 to all applicants. We were surprised by the high quality of the applications!
There were 447 first-choice applicants, which means about 10 times as many applicants as we can take in as students. This year, though, we can take in 48 new students, compared to last year's 30.
There have been other changes as well. Our name has changed, as you may have noticed. Fine Art will be from now on our third study path, in addition to Interactive Media and Music Production. The pre-tasks we received from the applicants were divided quite evenly between these three study paths.
The exact dates and times (23.-24.4.2014) for the entrance exam in Tampere are included in the invitation letter. We (the teachers & staff of Tamk Media and Arts) want to congratulate those of you who receive the invitation letter this year. We also recommend you to be at the exams on time.
If you were not invited to the entrance exam now, do not despair. We would very much like to take every student who wants to study here, but there is a limited number of places. Many of our media students have applied several times, so while waiting for next year, we recommend you to get more skills and experience relevant to your interests.
