Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Upon completion, a successful student has demonstrated their prior learning of professional English as being equivalent to the learning outcomes of an undergraduate English course. In the portfolio demonstration, the student will present documentation providing direct and indirect evidence of the following
- General English proficiency (defined as CEFR: B2 or higher)
- English for your field of study
- Oral presentation skills relevant to an international academic or professional context (within your field of study)
- Formal written communication skills relevant to an international academic or professional context (within your field of study)

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

A demonstration of your prior learning of English acquired through non-formal and informal learning that is equivalent to the learning outcomes of an undergraduate English course. The portfolio includes direct and indirect evidence, supported with third-party documentation of non-credentialed activities, such as work-related experience, badges and other micro credentials, training and other such life experiences not recognized through a transfer of credit. These learning accomplishments must equate the learning outcomes of an undergraduate English course at Aalto University. To demonstrate this prior learning of English for professional and/or academic purposes, a student submits a portfolio, compiled according to our guidelines (in MyCourses). Through the portfolio, students articulate the connections of their prior learning of English to the learning outcomes (stated above), substantiated with evidence. To determine whether this option is the right one, take the self-assessment (open access in MyCourses).
