Information on non-EU/EEA tuition fees and scholarships

Tuition fees and related new scholarship options will be introduced for non-EU/EEA students in Finland from August 2017 onwards. Depending on the degree course, the annual tuition fees can vary from 5000 to 20.000 euros approximately.

The fees concern non-EU/EEA degree students who start their studies in English-taught Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes in August 2017 or after that.

There will also be new scholarship/financial support options for gifted non-EU/EEA students enrolled in the fee-charging degree programmes.

Each Finnish university and UAS (university of applied science) independently decides their fee structure, and their scholarship system details.
