Practicalities

  • Courses are lectured from Monday to Friday. Lectures always start quarter past the hour and usually last 1,5 hrs (a two-hour lecture) at one time e.g. 10.15−11.45, 13.15−14.45, 15.15−16.45 ja 17.15−18.45 etc. or e.g. a three-hour lecture 09.15-11.45 usually with 15-minute break.
  • In both campuses (Otaniemi and Töölö) lunch break is between 12:00 and 13:00, there should be no teaching during lunch break.
  • Re-exams will be held on Mondays at 16 and Fridays at 14.
