Summer School


Social programme

Explore Helsinki and the surrounding nature

Whether you are into design and architecture, history, sports, outdoor activities or culture, the Finnish capital region has something to offer. Experience the Nuuksio national park, explore hidden pathways at Suomenlinna sea fortress or indulge in Nordic cuisine in central Helsinki!

Extend your network and exchange experiences

All our courses offer multi-disciplinary teamwork in global teams where you can connect with your coursemates on a deeper level. We also encourage our students to take part in the social program organised by the Summer School to get to know your peers in a relaxed and fun way.

Enjoy the closeness to the Baltic Sea

Finnish summer is one of a kind and it includes a lot of swimming (with a few rounds of sauna in between). Aalto University campus is located next to the sea and there are several public beaches and opportunities for a dip in the fresh Baltic Sea around both Espoo and Helsinki.
