Summer School


Learning experience

Offering inspiring learning experiences is a priority for us at Aalto University Summer School

In addition to high-quality teaching, we focus on multicultural and multidisciplinary interaction. Letting students work together in applying their new skills leads to the best learning experiences, both on campus and online.

Challenge-based learning

Challenge-based learning offers students the opportunity to collaborate with local and global partners. The real-life challenges and teaching and learning practices aligned with work-life environments increase students’ employability.

Relevant projects provide authentic learning experiences and allow students to explore, discuss, and meaningfully construct concepts and relationships.

Courses on campus

Aalto University hosts a world-class campus environment. Studying on campus allows participants to immerse themselves into a new culture, as well as focus entirely on the course topics without the hassle of everyday life at home. At Aalto University, we nurture a welcoming culture of inclusion, curiosity, wellbeing and collaboration.

Live online courses

Our online learning environments are designed from a learner-led perspective. Real-time synchronous learning is delivered live online by Aalto University faculty. The courses are delivered with the same enthusiasm and rigour as our on-campus courses, with a strong focus on challenge-based learning and facilitated teamwork. Online teamwork and collaboration are supported by Aalto University staff and teaching assistants.
