Plan your finances

Before accepting a study place in Finland, make sure your finances are in order. Depending on where you come from, you may have to pay the tuition fee, but you will also face everyday living expenses which you will need to cover independently.

Read more about living in Finland from the Study in Finland website.

Student support from your own country

In order to get student support from Finland, you have to be

  • registered as a permanent resident in Finland on the population register system; and
  • the purpose of your residence in Finland is other than study (such as work, family ties or repatriation).

Check whether you are eligible for student support or a scholarship from your own country or whether other foundations or institutions can help you with your finances.
