Welcome new Transmeds

New TRANSMEDs (as we call students in TRANSMED programme) can attend the Welcome Fair for new international students on Tuesday 27 August 2019 12:00-13:00 with the tutors. Tutors also help all new TRANSMEDs in the accommodation to the Faculty, the TRANSMED programme and the surviving in Helsinki in general.

The TRANSMED studies start on Monday 2 September 2019 at 9.00 in Biomedicum Helsinki, Haartmaninkatu 8, Helsinki, FINLAND. Biomedicum Helsinki is located in the Meilahti Campus - public transport with several buses and tram no 4.

During the first week, all students will have academic counselling about studies, teaching methods, assessment criteria and practices, ethical guidelines in studies, and the curriculum. Attendance is obligatory for all students. This guidance is provided by the programme director, who acts as a teacher tutor for all transmed students. The aim is to establish a personal study plan for each student.

You can start registering to the first obligatory courses of the curriculum in August. Registrations open in WebOodi. For registration, you need a working UH user account and some other browser than Internet Explorer. The course codes work best for searching.
