Weekly course schedule

NOTE: The study schedule above is draft with the compulsory courses. Use this to do your own study schedule. Check for the groups for Finnish 1A to find the one suitable for you. Because of the timing of the lectures, not all course combinations may be feasible.

NOTE: Some of the elective courses take place during the spring period, in parallel with your Thesis work. The student needs to carefully consider which courses, if any, he/she is willing and capable of taking along with the Thesis research and writing. The academic coordinator at Aalto is available for councelling with the issue.

Follow the link mycourses, copy-paste the course code in 'search course' field, select 'course overview' on the left and then 'course description' in the middle of the screen .
