University Pathway Finland

About us

Even if you're living and studying far from us, we are here to help and support all pathway students.


Our online learning environments are designed to support an interactive learning experience. The courses are delivered with the same enthusiasm and rigour as our on-campus courses, with a strong focus on challenge-based learning and facilitated teamwork.  

Apart from self-study assignments and online classes, our teachers, teaching assistants and study tutors are there to support you in succeeding in your studies. You will have the opportunity to attend study clinics, chats, discussion groups and other online events where you meet and interact with other international pathway students and our student tutors.  

Our support staff is just an email message away – get in touch by sending an email to [email protected]!

Aalto University

Aalto University is where science and art meet technology and business. We shape a sustainable future by making research breakthroughs in and across our disciplines, sparking the game changers of tomorrow and creating novel solutions to major global challenges.

By merging three leading Finnish universities in 2010, Aalto was founded to work as a societally embedded research university. In a short space of time, we have since become a forerunner in our key areas. We are renowned for our sense of community and culture of entrepreneurship and innovation.

The University Pathway Finland and the Talent Boost initiative

The University Pathway Finland (Science & Technology) is part of the Finnish government’s Talent Boost programme.

Talent Boost is a cross-administrative programme designed to attract and retain international talent and help with immigration. It aims to make Finland better known and more attractive to international talent. Other aims include harnessing the expertise of international specialists already residing in Finland to support Finnish companies' growth, internationalisation, and innovation activities.
