Study Abroad Fair in Otaniemi 25-26 January 2012

Would you be interested in going for student exchange to another university? Yes, also our international master students are encouraged to go abroad as part of their studies in Aalto University! School of Science organizes a Study Abroad Fair on 25 and 26 January in Otaniemi (Main building, Otakaari 1). Fair welcomes representatives of some of our partner universities from Europe and also our local cooperation partners from both outside and inside Aalto University. All of us will be there to answer your questions concerning student exchange – how it would be possible, to which countries, funding of exchange and how to get the studies compensated after the exchange. Come and visit the fair – get answers to all your questions at one go!

Get prepared – application period for student exchange places for the academic year 2012-2013 is at the door!

The spring 2012 application period for student exchange in technology and engineering will start on 1 February and ends on 1 March 2012. During this application period students of technology and engineering can apply for exchange places for the academic year 2012-2013 or only for autumn term 2012/spring term 2013. Destinations to apply on this application round are: Europe (Erasmus-exchange), Nordic countries (Nordtek/Nordplus-exchange), Asia (Hong Kong, China, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan),  Australia,  North and South America (Canada, United States, Mexico) and in Magalhães-network also to Chile, Brazil and Mexico. And remember, that Aalto University wants to encourage students to study abroad and thus supports the students with the student exchange scholarship. Aalto University scholarships are 1500e/one term and 2500/academic year and they are granted automatically for every student getting an exchange place at one of the partner universities of Aalto University.

Please note, that an international degree student may not apply for an exchange student place in his/her own country. One can confirm this with the coordinator of the exchange place in concern. It is also very important to always talk first with the planning officer of your programme about your plans to ensure that there is still space in your degree for exchange as all the credits earned during the exchange have to be included into Aalto University degree.
