 School of Business

Aalto University has two application periods for JOO studies, in April and in October. The main application round is in April, when there are more courses offered than in the supplement application round in October.

Before applying, familiarize yourself with the course descriptions and the possible preliminary requirements set for the course in WebOodi (you can serach for the courses with the course codes without logging in). If you are applying in October, you can also see the exact timetable set for the course. When applying in the April, the exact timetables for the following academic year have not yet been published. The teaching period of the course is however marked in the sheet containing the course offerings of the department (published below before the beginning of each application period).

Note, that a study right does not guarantee a place on the course, if e.g. the course has a quota or priority is given to a certain group of students.

If you intend to complete a minor at the School of Business, familiarize yourself with the structures of the minors, which are described in the Study Guide (degree regulations 2013). Note that not all the courses listed in the study guides are available for JOO students, but the lists below (of the courses offered for JOO students at each department) are exhaustive.

The decisions on granting the study rights will be made course by course. With most of the courses not all the applicants can be granted a study right. From the pool of applicants for a single course, those are prioritized, who (1) have already completed some School of Business courses that could be included as part of a minor for which they were applying the study right, (2) are applying a study right for a minor, and (3) have completed most ECTS credits for the degree.

Course descriptions and the structures of the minors

Note that not all the courses listed in the study guides are available for JOO students, but the lists here (of the courses offered for JOO students at each Aalto School, see "Studies offered") are exhaustive.

Application periods

Aalto University has two application periods for JOO studies.

1–30 April: for courses that are held during the next academic year (autumn, spring).
131 October: for courses that are held next spring. 

Doctoral students can apply anytime, but it is advisable to apply within the application periods, preferably during the term before the course begins. At the latest, apply four weeks before the course registration begins.

Exceptions: The above-mentioned application periods do not apply to certain programmes, which have their own application periods. The student must submit an application for the programme and a JOO application during the application period for said programme. Students who are admitted to the programme are granted a flexible study right for the programme. For more information about the programmes and possible further information, please visit https://into.aalto.fi/display/enmobility/Exceptions+to+the+normal+JOO+application+periods.

Separate application to each Aalto school

Aalto University consists of six schools. With one application a student applies to only one of the schools of Aalto University. Those who wish to apply for studies organized by different schools of Aalto must submit a separate application to each school.

Submitting the application

Aalto University uses the electronic application system for JOO studies. If your home university uses the electronic application system, submit the application through the application system. The electronic application is automatically transferred to Aalto University when your home university has endorsed the application in whole or in part. The application must arrive in Aalto University before the application period ends.

 Submitting a paper application to Aalto University

See In English Flexible Study Rights for the list of universities that use the electronic application system. If your home university does not use the electronic application system, fill in a paper JOO application. An endorsed application and an official transcript of records is delivered to the school which organizes the studies. The application must arrive in Aalto University before the application period ends. Please mark the envelope with the text: “JOO application”.

Please schedule the time needed for your home university’s endorsement process for both an electronic and paper application!

Admission criteria

Applications that arrive to Aalto University after the application period has ended are not processed. Aalto University can grant a right to study only for studies that are offered to JOO students, and only when the home university has first endorsed the application. The student must have adequate skills and abilities to complete the studies.

Some courses have a quota for students from other universities. If the quota is full, a right to study cannot be granted. Even if the course has no quota for JOO students, the application may have to be considered on a case-by-case basis, e.g. in terms of the size of teaching rooms, equipment and other resources. In some cases the decision is based on applicants' portfolios.

A study right does not guarantee a place on the course, if e.g. the course has a quota or priority is given to a certain group of students.

With applications for minor studies, all of the courses cannot always be granted at once. In such cases the student can apply for the rest of the courses later within the normal application periods, provided the courses are offered. It might also be possible to complete the missing courses in Aalto University Open University. Open University studies are not part of the Flexible Study Rights Agreement (JOO), which means that students pay for the studies themselves. More information about Aalto University Open University, the courses they offer and how to enrol can be found on their website http://avoin.aalto.fi/en/.

Duration and extent of the flexible study right

The right to study is granted for a fixed period. Usually when the right to study is for a maximum of 18 ECTS, it is granted for one year. When the right to study is for over 18 ECTS, the duration is two years. However, if the home university's endorsement is for a shorter time, Aalto University will not exceed it. If the student graduates from his/her home university, the JOO study right in Aalto University ends as well.

Aalto University can grant a study right for a maximum of 30 ECTS per student per application. If the student applies for a minor which requires that the student first fulfills the prerequisites, Aalto University can grant 30 + prerequisites.

Starting your studies

The decisions are usually made approximately a month after the application period has ended. If the right to study is granted, you will receive instructions on starting the studies. Instructions for new JOO students

Credit transfer

Credit transfer is done as instructed by the home university. You are responsible for providing your home university with information on completed flexible studies. An official transcript of records can be obtained from the Student Services upon request, or it can be posted to your home address. You can order an official digitally-signed transcript of records in WebOodi while you are a student at Aalto. The electronic transcript of records is a PDF document equipped with a digital signature to confirm its authenticity and integrity.
