Summer Exams for Aalto Students
Aalto teachers organise opportunities to take various exams during the summer months. Please read the instructions for students at into.fi. The information is available in three languages: "Kesätentit" / "Sommartentamina" / "Summer exams"

Summer Schools available for Aalto Students
There are some Summer Schools organised by partner universities and other institutions, which offer studies for Aalto Students. Please read more at into.fi, (the last of seven drop lists): FI / SV / EN

 

Accomodation


There are several accommodation alternatives available and you are free to choose according to your needs and budget. Many may wish to utilise the furnished single, double and triple hostel level rooms available in Otaniemi. The price is lower if you book early, but for those who do not know the exact travel dates yet, it is best to utilise the Aalto negotiated prices at various Forenom locations. Please upload the file for additional information on accommodation, and guide on how to choose the best alternative for you.

 

Social Programme


August will be our busiest Aalto Summer month during which the Social Program will be most lively. E.g. every Wednesday evening we will be having a BBQ. In addition, excursions to local attractions, museums and places of interest will be made. Some events are free of charge and some will be available for a fee covering direct costs such as admission prices. The Social Programme will be elaborated during April and May, 2018.


Registration & Prices

 

Students from outside Aalto are welcome to apply for Aalto Summer courses. The prices mentioned in the course list apply to those who do not currently have a degree study right at Aalto or are not at Aalto for an ongoing student exchange.

Please send your Application Form to summer [at] aalto [dot] fi or by regular mail to Aalto Summer, Learning Services, PL 11000, 00076 AALTO.

If you apply for a course and you are accepted, you will receive an e-mail informing of acceptance. In addition you will receive an invoice. Once you have paid the invoice an invitation letter will be sent to you and the embassy, which you have detailed in your Application Form if you need to apply for a visa.

If you need to cancel, these are the applicable cancellation terms:

  • cancelling up to 60 days before the beginning of the course: 90% refund (Aalto University will deduct 10 % of each course fee as a service and bank cost fee)
  • cancelling up to 30 days before the beginning of the course: 50 % refund
  • cancelling less than 30 days before the beginning of the course: no refund, unless the cancellation was caused by denied entry visa, in which case you need to send a copy of the refusal letter.
     

FAQ & Contact

 

FAQ

I am a degree student at Aalto. Do I need to pay for the Aalto Summer courses?
No, you don't, with the exception of Open University summer courses. Please read more at the Open University website.

I am a degree student at Aalto. Where do I register for the Aalto Summer courses?
Please register using the regular channels, i.e. MyCourses or WeOodi, unless the course details say otherwise. The Application Form is meant for non-Aalto participants.

When are the Aalto Summer courses taking place?
Some courses start as early as May but most Aalto Summer courses take place in August.

When is the deadline for registering or applying for courses?
The application deadlines are mentioned in the course details. In general the deadline is approximately one month before the start of the course. The sooner you register the better your chances of securing a place.

I am a high school. Can I participate in the Aalto Summer courses?
Yes, you can apply for the courses which are marked as open to anyone and which list no pre-requisites. Aalto Summer is a great way to get a taste of studies at Aalto!

I am a working professional. Can I still apply for an Aalto Summer course?
Yes, you can apply for the courses which are marked as open to anyone and where you fulfil the mentioned pre-requisites. Aalto Summer is a great way to update your knowledge base and be inspired by new experiences!

Does Aalto Summer offer language courses?
You can apply to the language and communication courses, but the number of places for students coming from outside Aalto is limited. When you apply, we will inform you promptly whether indeed we can offer you a place.

Can I take more than one course at the same time?
Yes you can, but please check the scheduling for overlaps. If you are not sure about the workload (or scheduling), you can always contact us at summer [at] aalto [dot] fi. E.g. the entrepreneurship courses in August are scheduled in a way which allows you to participate in all three courses.

Will I receive a diploma at the end of the Aalto Summer course?
You will get a diploma and a transcript of records at the end of the course, or in case that is not possible, a hard copy will be mailed to you in the coming weeks.

 

Can Aalto help me obtain a visa?
Once you have been accepted to a course and you have paid the course fee (if the course is a fee based) we will send you an invitation along with the letter of acceptance. If you need a visa, please remember to send a copy of your passport when you are applying. If for some reason you cannot get a visa, we will give you a 90% refund (we deduct 10 % as a service & bank cost fee).

What if I need to cancel?
If you cancel up 60 days before the beginning of the course, we will give you a 90% refund (we deduct 10 % as a service & bank cost fee). If you cancel up to 30 days before the beginning of the course, we will give you a 50 % refund. After that no refund, unless you need to cancel because you were denied an entry visa. If you are utilizing the Forenom accommodation, it is advisable to utilize the "Flexible Reservation Fee" costing about 30 euros as you will get a refund on your paid accommodation, if you do need to cancel for any reason.

Does Aalto offer scholarships for the Aalto Summer?
Sorry, as a general rule we unfortunately have no scholarships to offer, unless the course information states otherwise. If you are a student at one of our Partner Universities, your own university may be able to offer you a travel grant. If this applies to you, please contact your international office.

Where are the Aalto Summer courses held?
Aalto Summer courses are held in various parts of the Otaniemi campus, in Espoo. You are connected to Helsinki by the metro and even the airport is only 17 km away. There is some accommodation alternatives also in Otaniemi, but more variety and availability nearby, in other parts of Espoo and in Helsinki too.
 

Where do the other students come from and how many of us are there in a typical course?
Many of the courses have about 20-30 participants (more precise info in the detailed course information) and there will most probably be participants from Finland, other European countries and e.g. from Korea, China and India. We welcome participants from all over the world!

Will I be greeted by someone at the airport?
If you are e.g. travelling to Finland for the first time and you would be more comfortable having someone greet you, just drop us a line at summer [at] aalto [dot] fi or mention this in your Application Form. If you are utilizing the Forenom accommodation deal, you can also include an additional service to your package and you will not only get an airport transfer but also be introduced to the services close to your accommodation (grocery store, public transfer, pharmacy etc.).

My university has an exchange agreement with the Aalto. Do I still have to pay the full Aalto Summer course fee?
The Aalto Summer fees apply to all participants not studying at Aalto either towards a degree. If you are studying at Aalto as an exchange student either in spring or autumn 2018, the fee does not apply to you.

Do I need to have travel insurance?
Yes. Please be sure to purchase travel insurance from your permanent place of residence, before you travel. If you are an EU/EEA citizen or resident, you may take advantage of the European Health Insurance Card, which you need to get before you travel. Please be aware of its limitations, e.g. that it does not cover private healthcare costs.

Do I need my own laptop?
You will get more out of the courses if you have your own laptop, but there are PC labs available for you to use. Otaniemi offers great wifi service free of charge! Aalto Summer participants also get a visitor IT account which means you have plenty of information resources at your disposal.

Is there wifi on campus and in the accommodation facilities?
Otaniemi offers you great wifi service free of charge, and almost all forms of accommodation have free wifi, whether it is Airbnb, Forenom or a hotel.

What is the language of instruction?
The language of instruction in all of the fee-based courses is English. If you are not proficient in English, you may not get a passing grade! You need to understand spoken and written English, and you need to be able to express your thoughts in English, in order to truly participate in the course. Please note that there are a few courses for Aalto students only which are held in Swedish.

Do I need to speak some Finnish to “survive” in Finland?
You will find that many if not most local people speak English, although the variety of accents may be diverse.

Do I get student discounts in Student Café’s or buses and metros?
Aalto Summer students may be eligible for a student discount in public transport if they meet certain criteria (See public transport website https://www.hsl.fi/en). Please fill in the application form and go to Starting Point to get a stamp and signature from Aalto.

Do you need a copy of my passport?
Yes. Please send us a scanned copy of your passport if you are from outside the EU/EEA and you require a visa to enter Finland.

Does Aalto have a Code of Conduct?
We do indeed have a Code of Conduct and all Aalto Summer participants need to follow it.

I have special needs. Can you cater to my needs?
Please describe any special needs (e.g. regarding logistics, accommodation and food) in your Application Form. We will do our best to make your participation possible.
