“At Aalto, we aim to renew society with research-based knowledge, creativity and an entrepreneurial mindset. That’s why we also offer study opportunities that don’t require being enrolled in a university. For example, Aalto University Open University offers courses and study modules for anyone interested in our fields or university education in general. It’s also possible to be admitted to degree studies in the technology and the business and economics fields based on Open University studies”, Suomala continues.
In the technology and the business and economics fields, part of the students are admitted based on their grades in the national matriculation exams. This year, 80 % of new students were chosen to study technology based on their grades and 60 % of new students were chosen to the field of business and economics based on their grades.
There are also 87 applicants who applied to Aalto University through the transfer application procedure that allows students to apply for a transfer to another school or study option. In this application process, the most popular study option was the bachelor’s programme in the field of business and economics.
The technology and the business and economics fields also accept students through Aalto’s Open University track. These tracks are available for specific study options and registration is open year-round. It is possible to apply to the field of technology through the Open University during the autumn joint application period, which runs from 31 August to 14 September 2022.
