Into (into.aalto.fi) is now Student Guide on aalto.fi!
Into (into.aalto.fi) has been the study guide for Aalto University students and its contents are now migrated to aalto.fi under the new name 'Student Guide'. You can find all the same information previosly on Into now in the Student Guide. Going forward, aalto.fi will be the primary source of Aalto information and news. You can recognise Student Guide contents by the illustration style, an example of which is seen here in the main image. You can find more information on navigating the Student Guide and reasons behind the change below.
Look and navigation of the Student Guide
In many ways, it is similar to Into, however, technically and visually it differs.Below are examples on the look and logic of the new site. Please note that some things are subject to change on the Student guide upon publication.
At the top of each page of the Student guide is the main navigation panel where you can find five headers, some with max. five subheaders. Pictured is the front page of the Student guide with the header "Programmes, Minors and Courses" open. You will recognize headers with a subnavigation by the arrow icon after the header title.
You can find all current programmes of Aalto University on the Student Guide. You can filter the programmes by the degree level, school and curriculum period or search for the programme directly.
You can find all current programme pages on the Student guide. The programme pages have their own navigation with five headers, some with max. five subheaders. Pictured is the programme main page with the header "During your studies" opened to reveal five subheaders where you can find more information on each topic.
The pages on the Student guide often list links to specific sites without further explanations on each topic. This is to allow the user to navigate the site as smoothly as possible and to see a page's contents at a glimpse.
