Our campus tours that are designed specifically for the prospective students, their families and study counsellors, will help you to get a feel of what it is like to study at Aalto University. You will also discover useful information about study programmes and application process. We offer different types of tours for prospective students depending on the size of the group and institution's location: tours for an individual international or local student and their families (group up to 5 people) and tours for larger groups of students and their study counsellors from Finnish high schools or other educational institutions. All our campus tours for prospective applicants are free of charge. When registering for the tour, you can specify your preferred study field.
