  1. Find out information about the available courses. Read the course descriptions carefully before registration. Take notice if the content and timetable are suitable for you, and how much your attendance at lectures is needed. Some courses also require preliminary knowledge or studies. Check also the possibility to compile minor studies.
  2. Use the Aimo service to register for the Open University courses. At first register as user, then you will get an Aimo username that you will need to register for courses and related exams. Selection criteria for courses is the order of registration. Registration is always binding, and it is not possible to transfer the course fee onto another course.
  3. After registration you can activate an Aalto user ID. You will need it to log in to the MyCourses learning environment and to the WebOodi student information system, where you can find your personal student number and check your results.
  4. Actual studies begin with the first lecture and/or with the instructions the teacher gives for the course. Separate invitations will not be sent. You will find information on timetables, teaching locations and teaching methods in the course description. You may also want to familiarize yourself with the Aalto Campus. Some courses might include preliminary assignments or an exam, for which information will be available in the course description. Aalto University Learning Centre is the place you can ask for coursebooks and literature.
  5. If the course has exams, you don’t have to register for the first exam, but for the retakes the registration takes place in the Aimo Service with your Aimo username and password. The payment of an independent book exam covers only one exam.
  6. Results of exams and passed courses are recorded in the study information system WebOodi. You can download or order a transcript of records of your studies. Please check your results four weeks after the course/exam, in case there is something to remark.
