Welcome new students!

Congratulations on your study place and welcome to HAMK!

Selections based on school performance were made already in May and soon results from the entrance examinations will be published. Achieving a place to study always requires a lot of work and this year the coronavirus certainly brought its own additional worries and stress to applicants. Once your place of study is secured, congratulate yourself on a great performance. Congratulations are the least you have earned!

After the congratulations, however, it is a good idea to start orienting yourself to the studies that will begin soon. As you prepare for this exciting phase of life, at least the following things should be done:
