Registration for Open University exams takes place in the Aimo-service (exception: degree students on summer courses register in Sisu, if they have also done course registration in Sisu). Please register for exams with the same username that you have used when registering for the course (usually it is your Aimo ID, not your Aalto ID). For Open University students it is recommended to always use Aimo with Aimo username and password

If you have trouble with exam registration, please contact [email protected]

You have the right to take part in all the exams which are mentioned in the course description (usually 3 exams/course). The payment of a book exam covers only one exam. Exam dates are available in the course description or on MyCourses. Exam results can be found in Sisu, and sometimes also on MyCourses.

Students in need of alternative arrangements for disability or health reasons must contact the examination organizer avoin(at)aalto.fi at the beginning of the course. More information on individual study arrangements.

Exams are offered either by the Open University (Open University evening courses) or by Aalto University Schools/Language Centre (degree courses).

Information on exams arranged during the pandemic situation

Open University evening exams: necessary contact examinations are arranged taking into account the university's corona regulations.

Exams on degree courses: please follow updates in Into.

How can I check the organizer of the course?

  • You can find the organizer in the course description.
  • In the Aimo service names of exams offered by the Open University start with Open Uni (in Finnish Avoin yo).
  • Open University course codes begin with capital A (for example, A21A00110 and ALC-2001 are codes of Open University courses; the equivalent courses offered by degree studies are 21A00110 and LC-2001).
  • Some courses have an EXAM electronic examination software in use. For more information see the section "EXAM" below.
