Aalto University does not charge application fees. All information regarding admissions is available to everyone on the university’s website. The use of educational agents is not necessary in the application process and applicants are advised not to use any fee-charging services for applying. Applicants should always fill in the application themselves and use their own contact details. This ensures that the applicant receives all important information directly from the University. Any third party involvement may hinder the application processing and admission procedure.

NordSecMob is a joint Master's programme organised in cooperation by five universities. To complete the programme and graduate with double degree, students must study at two of the consortium universities, refered to as home and host university, together forming a study track.
The home and host universities are defined already during the application and selection process. Applicants must specify which study track they wish to follow (in order of priority) on the application form. The NordSecMob selection committee allocates the study tracks to the students based on their preferences and on availability of seats at each university.
Applicants cannot be rejected because of study track choice, but the allocated study track cannot be changed later on, so choose your study track wishes carefully.
See Study Programme for further information about the study track options.
The scholarships available for all nationalities on this admission period are:
- Erasmus Mundus scholarships
- NordSecMob Consortium scholarships, number and extent depends on available funds
- Programme fee waivers, number depends on available funds
Note that there is no separate application for these scholarships. You must indicate which Erasmus Mundus scholarships category you belong to on the application form. All selected applicants will be considered as candidates for the NordSecMob consortium scholarships. All selected non-EU/EEA applicants will be considered as candidates for the programme fee waivers. Consortium scholarship and waiver holders may stay on the reserve list for the Erasmus Mundus scholarships.
All enrolled students in NordSecMob programme who have not been granted an Erasmus Mundus scholarship or certain consortium scholarships can also apply for Nordplus scholarships for the studies at the host university.
