Introduction course

Language studies

According to the degree regulations at Aalto University, students must take at least 3 ECTS of foreign language studies for the degree. In Master’s Programme in ICT Innovation the students have the option to choose between an English course, fulfilling both oral and written requirements (o,w) or at least 3 ECTS of Finnish courses. The compulsory foreign language course may also be completed at the partner university under certain circumstances (e.g. KTH). We recommend the English course LC-1310  Academic Communication for MSc Students for everyone, and taking any other course may lead to problems of recognition at the partner university.Taking the Finnish course(s) as part of the degree requires an application for exemption from the foreign language course requirement. If you want to take Finnish instead of English, contact the planning officer of the programme.

NOTE: If you are entry or exit student of POLIMI or UPM, we strongly recommend LC-1310 Academic Communication for MSc Students to avoid problems with recognition of your credits.
