Transfer applications

Students may apply as transfer students to a Bachelor’s programme or study option if they hold a right to study towards a Bachelor’s and Master´s degree at another Finnish higher education institution or towards a different degree at Aalto University.

The school academic affairs committees of all schools define the minimum requirements for transfer to their Bachelor’s programmes or study options. The minimum requirements may include all or some of the following criteria:

  • studies completed in a specific subject
  • a minimum credit requirement for a specific subject
  • academic performance, e.g. average grade (weight may be put on only the academic performance in specific studies or in general)
  • requirements for the progress of studies, for instance, studies must be completed in target time or a certain number of credits earned per academic terms attended. When assessing the progress of studies, the reasons accepted as grounds for granting extension to the right to study (e.g. voluntary military service or conscription, maternity or paternity leaves or parental leave or illness) must be considered as permissible reasons for delay.
  • If needed, the skill level and motivation of the student may be assessed with the help of existing entrance examination procedures, documents or tasks (e.g. portfolio, interview).
