Survival Kits

The idea of a survival kit is to provide students with some everyday items that are expensive to buy here and difficult to bring with. Survival kits are maintained and offered by Tamko and CLINT in co-operation.

The kits can’t be reserved, they are on first come first serve basis. You can get one when you arrive in Finland. However, you may ask your tutor to get it for you, so they have it ready for you when you arrive. You can make the payment when you arrive at school.

The kits are meant for exchange students as well as incoming foreign degree students studying in TAMK.

The price of the Survival Kit for the first semester is:
– 80€ for all
– 20/25€ (member/non-member) extra charge for the 2nd semester

However, 50€ (Tamko non-members) and 55€ (Tamko members)  is refunded once the kit is returned (in good shape!). If the kit is returned untidy (i.e. dishes are not done) or something is missing or broken, the deposit fee will be kept as compensation.
