Study plan

Exchange students need to upload their course registration form on to their application during the application period. The courses which are offered for the exchange students can be found from the course schedule for exchange students.

Course registration will be done on "First come, First serve" -basis. The confirmation on the course registration will be send to the students at latest one month before the beginning of the exchange. In case of course cancellation etc. the student will automatically be registered  to another selected course in his/her list in the same module. The student may also be offered another course not listed in here. Aalto Mikkeli Campus will inform the students immediately by e-mail, if there are any changes to the curriculum.


Studies and COVID-19 pandemic

At the moment (April 2021), our plan is to start the fall semester 2021 on campus, but the pandemic is so unpredictable that we can confirm this only later in the summer 2021. We will keep the incoming exchange students updated on the situation all the time and recommend that all the travel arrangements and accommodation reservations will be done with the possibilities to change them.
