Tuition Fees for Universities in Finland

Students from the EU/EEA/ or Switzerland are privy to Finland’s world-class public education and are not required to pay tuition fees. That said, this does not include private institutions or added expenses from materials and living costs, so make sure to incorporate these into your overall budget. Scholarship opportunities are also lower for students from these countries.

Since 2017, non-EU/EEA students studying in Finland are required to pay tuition fees to pursue a bachelor’s and master’s level program in English. Doctorate programs are usually tuition free, but this can vary between institutions.

Each university sets their own fees, which can be different from program to program, but costs are set somewhere between €10,000 and 16,000 on average, not including general living expenses.

Fortunately, students who are required to pay tuition fees are also more eligible to apply for an institution’s scholarship program, so make sure to check out the available scholarship opportunities when choosing a university in Finland!
