So called Aalto cross-school courses and University Wide Art Studies -courses are open for all Aalto students. They are specially suited for students from all backgrounds. You do not need to separately apply for a study right for these courses.
Degree students at other Aalto Schools do not need to separately apply for a study right in order to complete courses at the School of Chemical Technology, School of Electrical Engineering, School of Engineering or School of Science.
Places are limited, and study right must be applied for. Study right can only be applied for courses that are listed as part of the offerings for students from other Aalto Schools. Doctoral students can apply for a study right for any of the courses.
Individual courses are open for application (with some exceptions) four times a year as follows:
Course selection in the academic year 2016–2017
The applicant must fulfill the possible preliminary requirements or other conditions for successful accomplishment set for a specific course. The applicant may simultaneously apply for a study right for the course granting the preliminary requirements and for the following course, and after gaining the study right, will take the courses in the required order.
In your application, you must also include your personal study plan (PSP) indicating that studies applied for have been approved as part of your study plan.
Granting a study right at the receiving School does not mean that the student can automatically include the studies as part of his/her degree. It is the responsibility of the student to make sure that the studies can be included as part of of his/her degree by approving them in his/her Personal Study Plan (PSP) before applying for the study right.
Get the studies approved as part of your Personal Study Plan (PSP) well in advance before applying!
You will receive the decision on your study right within about a month from the application deadline. If there are a lot of applications this might sometimes take longer. You can see the decision by logging in to eAge-system and opening the decision. If you were not granted a study right you can apply again during the application periods if the course/minor is offered.
The granted study right does not guarantee the access for a specific course, in case the course is defined with e.g. a pre-exam, a quota for participants, or a priority order.
In case the course has more applicants than the quota, the study right will be granted according to the following principles: the progress of the students studies at the home School (in general the student that are farther along in their studies are given priority), how the applicants fulfill the possible prerequisites. If it is not possible in any way to make the distinction between applicants, the student/s who will receive the study right will be drawn out of the hat.
