Studies and changes
Pre-examination and defence
Application to doctoral studies
Non-degree studies enable studies at Aalto University without a right to complete a degree. Persons living in Finland may apply for non-degree studies at Aalto University. The purpose of non-degree studies is to improve one's professional skills by taking courses in one's own field.
Application to readmission
If you lose your right to study on account of failure to enrol for the academic year, you must apply for readmission. If more than one academic year has passed since you neglected to enrol, you must append a goal-oriented and feasible plan showing how you will complete your studies within a reasonable period of time. For doctoral students, this plan is the Doctoral personal study plan (DPSP).
Waiving/renouncing the study right
If you wish to give up your study right completely, please note that the decision is binding. Please submit the application to your Doctoral programme's Doctoral Education Services (aalto.fi)
