Admission results for the joint Application 2020 for higher education (study programmes offered in English) are ready.

If you have been admitted to a study programme, you will receive a notification of this to your email.

Please note that you can confirm only one study place per academic term. Confirm the study place by 17 July by 3 pm (UTC/GMT +3).

 

Higher education institutes organize supplementary applications during July and August. In these applications, you can apply to degree programmes where the applicant quota was not filled.

See the selection of available degree programmes taught in English in supplementary applications.

Studyinfo-service (incl. My Studyinfo) suffered from technical issues 14.7. from 15.37 until 15:59. 

If you confirmed a study place during this time period, please check the My Studyinfo-service if the confirmation has succeeded. 

Apologies for the inconvenience caused by the disruption. 

Annual tuition fees

A notebook and a credit card

Universities of applied sciences and universities charge a tuition fee from bachelor’s or master’s level students studying in languages other than Finnish or Swedish.

EU/EEA area and Swiss citizens are not subject to the charge. See here if you are required to pay annual tuition fees. 

The amount of the fee can vary between higher education institutions.

Scholarships

Finnish higher education institutions offer a range of scholarship options for those non-EU/EEA students who are required to pay tuition fees.

Each university/UAS has its own scholarship system, so the kinds of scholarship available and any tuition fees you are expected to cover will depend on the institution and the degree programme in question. The details of scholarships for each programme can be seen from the degree programme description.

Exemption from the fee

The fee is not charged from students who are equated with EU area citizens. The exemption also applies to those who have an EU blue card stated in the Aliens Act, continuous or permanent residence permit or a long-term resident’s EC residence permit.

If you already have a study right in a Finnish higher education institution in a degree programme that did not charge tuition fees when you started your studies, and you apply for a transfer through transfer student application for a degree programme that now charges tuition fees, you will not have to pay the tuition fee.
