Exchange studies at Aalto University

The exchange agreements between Aalto University and partner universities are made for a specific school or field of study at Aalto. This means that you should apply to and choose courses mainly from that specific school or field of study.

For example, if your home university has an exchange agreement with the School of Chemical Engineering, you cannot apply to study in the School of Arts, Design and Architecture. If you are unsure how to select the courses, please contact the exchange coordinator in the Aalto school you have been nominated to.

In addition, you are welcome to take some interdisciplinary studies such as University Wide Studies! Aalto University offers a unique possibility to try something different from your own field of studies. Please read more below.

Exchange students follow the same courses as degree students. Most of the courses lectured in English are available for you in the school you have been nominated to. However, there are courses that have some restrictions or quotas. The requirements are usually mentioned in the course description. Certain courses can sometimes be available for certain majors only or master's level students only etc. Large number of master level courses are taught in English, however, bachelor level students are allowed to take master level courses provided that prerequisites are met.

All the students are required to have a feasible Learning Agreement/Study Plan. It is important to remember that the Learning Agreement/Study Plan is preliminary and some changes after arrival are possible. Please note that you might not be accepted to all courses you have chosen. It is good to have some alternative courses in mind and you have to be prepared to make some changes to your original Learning Agreement/Study Plan.

When you choose courses for your Learning Agreement/Study Plan, the updated course information might not be available yet. In this case, the study plan is made according to the course information of the previous academic year. You can find the course list for each Aalto school below.
