Aalto University organises orientation for new students in the beginning of the autumn semester (for exchange students also in January). 

Complete Aalto Pre-orientation in MyCourses before your arrival to campus, after you have activated your IT credentials. Self-study material guides you through our tools and services and helps you prepare for your studies. If you are unable to complete the Pre-orientation before orientation week, you will have time to complete it later. Orientation continues with on-campus orientation in the beginning of the semester. 

All new students are strongly advised to fully participate in the Pre-orientation and Orientation week. The orientation includes important information on studies and practical matters, as well as useful information on living in Finland for international students. It is a good opportunity to get to know the relevant people and places, meet other students and learn about the student services available to you. You will also meet your tutors and have a chance to discuss any issues you may have about starting your studies at Aalto.

Your programme’s orientation schedule and information about where to report on Mon orientation week 36 (the week of 31 August 2020), can be found at the "Starting your studies" and "Key dates" page for your programme.
