Language skill requirements

Aalto University Summer School does not require an official test record of English proficiency. However, we expect the students to have a strong command of English, both in writing and in communicating in the classroom, to be able to fulfil the course learning objectives. Language skills may be used as criteria in the application approval process. 

Tuition fees

Tuition fees are calculated based on the level of the course (e.g. bachelor/master) and credits (ECTS). Please see information about course-specific tuition fees on each course page. 

Note that in addition to the tuition fee, some Summer School courses carry a programme fee that covers extracurricular activities, special materials or additional services, such as portfolio photos. The information about a possible programme fee can be found on the course page. 

Applicants will receive payment instructions via email after being accepted to a course. Applicants confirm their course participation by paying the tuition fee. The tuition fees are paid with a credit card or through Finnish online banks. International students are encouraged to check that they have allowed international payments from their credit card.
