Planning your studies

Instructions for planning your studies

An essential and required part of your studying at Aalto is your study planning. Planning your studies will give you the broad outlines of them in their entirety, helping you to build up your own competencies and expertise in the direction that interests you.

The Universities Act (558/2009) (in Finnish), Aalto’s degree regulations and your programme’s curriculum determine a portion of your degree’s content, while a portion can be chosen by you yourself according to your interests, goals and life situation. Your minor, thesis topic and elective studies are all examples of studies that you may quite freely plan. You may also decide to go on a student exchange programme or complete studies at other Finnish universities.
