You can take up a language in the middle of the academic year at Aalto, as the Language Centre offers several basic-level language courses during period II. These include Spanish, French and German, which are offered at the ‘0 level’, meaning no previous studies are required. Registration is open from 1 to 22 October. The courses are held on Otaniemi campus.


All languages are also offered at the intermediate level. If you had language class in high school, it may be possible to jump directly into a higher level course. Aalto’s language instructors can provide additional information and help you find the right level. More information on Aalto language studies is available on the Language Centre webpages and on Oodi.
