Hi there! Aalto Squad combines all the student activities in bachelor’s and master’s level in all languages, in Finnish, Swedish and English.

Chat sessions for prospective students
Are you still wondering whether Aalto University is the best choice for you? In the sessions you can get answers to questions about applying to Aalto and e.g. housing, campus, student life.
During the application period we will host chat sessions to share information about the admissions process and studies at Aalto. Students and Admissions staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have to help in the process. You can follow the session from your laptop, smartphone or tablet. Here we will let you know when the next sessions will come up.
Upcoming sessions: 7,15 and 22 January 2019, at 4 pm EET, click here to join the chat session.
We have also opened a Facebook chat for applicants interested especially in our English Master's programmes in the field of business. The chat will be open from 26 November to 13 January. Send us a message!
Where to find us
Less than one third of scientists and engineers in Finland are women. In the EU Member States, only Luxembourg has less female engineers than Finland does. The number of female doctoral graduates in Finland is growing every year. However, there are still three times less female PhD graduates than male ones. This needs to change.
I can recommend taking advantage of the exchange opportunities in Aalto University to everyone. We often do not even realize how grateful we are to have so many choices to explore the world.
Considering furthering your education but thinking you are too old? Friends and family asking you how old you will be when you graduate? Tell them that you will be the same age as if you do not graduate!
