Would you like to learn Japanese or take some online language courses? As an Aalto student, you have access to language courses offered by the universities of applied sciences in the Greater Helsinki region.

As of the 2019–2020 academic year, the Aalto University Language Centre will reintroduce Japanese to its course offering. For details on the Language Centre courses, please see Oodi and our Into pages.

Are you interested in online language courses?

In the 2019 autumn term, we will be offering 3–5-credit online language courses in a total of nine languages including Spanish, Korean and Estonian as part of a pilot project under KiVAKO, a collaboration project funded by the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture and involving 26 higher education institutions.

The courses, set up on the Moodle platform of the DigiCampus project, will have a fixed number of student places reserved for each KiVAKO partner institution, and any unfilled places will be filled in the order of registration. You can register for the courses from 2 to 15 September 2019. Further course details and registration instructions will be published on the websites of the higher education institutions involved and on the DigiCampus Moodle platform in late August.
