According to the new legislation Institutes of Higher Education in Finland must charge tuition fees from the students coming outside of the European Union and the European Economic Area when applying to English taught degree programmes.
The size of the tuition fee varies between the different schools and the different programmes offered by the particular school. The higher educational establishments can decide themselves on the arrangements regarding the collection of the fees.
Please check for more information at Studyinfo "Am I required to pay tuition fees?"
Please check for more information on EU/EEA countries at Finnish Immigration Service website.
Note! Citizens of Finland are not required to provide proof of their citizenship; it will be verified from the population register
Copies of the documents must be delivered to Admission Services by 8 February 2017 by 3 pm Finnish time.
The original documents will be checked.
Note! If a student receives one of the documents mentioned above at any point of the application period or later during the studies, he/she should provide us the document immediately. If the document is delivered after the tuition fee is already paid, the remaining fee will be returned.
In Oulu UAS the amount of the tuition fee for non-EU/EEA applicants is 8 000 euros / academic year.
An electronic invoice of the tuition fee will be sent to the student after he/she has confirmed the study place and enrolled for the academic year. The student has to pay the fee within 14 days.
The tuition fee entitles the student to study and receive a degree and to use the normal support services available for students. However, all students for example have to buy books and other educational material themselves, get insurance as well as take care of their own travelling and living costs (accommodation, food, clothing, leisure activities). Average monthly living cost for a student is estimated to be about 600–900 euros.
According to Finnish Immigration Service, in addition to the amount of the tuition fee, the student has to have at least 6 720 euros / academic year available to cover the living costs.
All non-EU/EEA students starting their studies in the autumn 2017 are expected to pay tuition fees
Students who complete at least 55 ECTS credits during the academic year will be granted a scholarship of 4 000 euros for the next year of studies by application.
The scholarships can be granted for the optimal study time of the degree programme.
Note! In order to graduate in the optimal time the student has to complete 60 cr/academic year.
Students required to pay tuition fees can apply for a scholarship. The scholarship is awarded based on the progress of studies (55 ECTS cr / academic year).
Scholarship can be applied in the spring of each academic year. First available application for students beginning their studies in autumn 2017 is in the spring 2018.
The application for scholarship is once a year, in the spring term. Applicants must have finished 55 ECTS credits to be able to apply and the scholarship is paid retrospectively.
First year students can apply their first scholarship in the spring term of their first academic year.
Continuing students can apply for scholarship each spring. If the student graduates within optimal time and meets the requirements for the scholarship, the last scholarship is paid to the student's bank account.
For socioeconomic reasons a student can apply for a full scholarship from the tuition fee after the first year of studies. In order to get the full scholarship the student has to complete at least 55 ECTS credits in the previous year. More information will be updated to this website later.
