Study at Aalto

Personal Impact

Early adulthood is a time of searching and goal setting. The skills to set goals in changing life situations are important also for well-being.

Previous psychological research points out that University students are in the age of identity construction, as well as modifying life-long strategies for goal setting. To empower the construction of identity and personal goal setting as well as to pursue transformative learning skills in working life, the students need support from the educational institutions.

Personal Impact brings together credited courses taught at Aalto, for example on self-management, values, relevance and well-being. The courses provide an opportunity to reflect on one’s own values, beliefs, and goals, either in internal dialogue or in conversations with others.

Depending on the programme, students may complete the courses offered in the Personal Impact either as part of their compulsory or elective studies. The courses make it possible to meet other students from all different fields of the university.

The 2020-2021 course offering will be published in August 2020.

Student support, guidance and study well-being

Study well-being is important in Aalto University and it is one of our strategic initiatives. We want to ensure our students’ success, capabilities and wellbeing in a multicultural and diverse community. Study well-being questionnaire results indicate that students who feel well also study well. We have many ways to support this wellbeing by providing first-class study support and doing continuous development of teaching.
