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. Courses make it possible to meet other students from all different fields of the university.
