Aalto Summer School COVID-19 update

Update 15.5.2020: All summer courses and programs listed on the Aalto Summer School website are scheduled normally and most of them are available online. Campus access is limited at the moment, so we encourage all international students to join our courses and programs remotely.

Currently, all summer courses and programs listed on the Aalto Summer School website are scheduled normally unless there is a change in Aalto University’s policy regarding on-site teaching during the summer semester. Aalto Summer School follows Aalto University’s COVID-19 policy, which can be found at

Like other European countries, Finland has released several protocols to cope with the spreading of the COVID-19 virus. Aalto University has restricted receiving visitors before 31st May 2020. Following Finland's national restrictions, all teaching is remote and online until 13th May 2020. Nevertheless, the situation keeps updating as we progress closer to summer.

In the unfortunate event that we need to cancel summer courses and programs due to ongoing regulations, we will fully refund the payment of the course or program. If we need to cancel our teaching for the summer semester, we will inform you accordingly via email mid-May 2020. We have updated our cancellation terms.

We will also take the opportunity and further develop our online provision for the summer semester and want to welcome students to join our courses and programs remotely.

We genuinely hope we can offer our courses and programs during the summer of 2020 and we will keep you up to date.
