Tuition Free Universities in Finland for International Students

Do you want to study abroad on tuition free universities in Finland?

University higher education in Finland is funded by the State through the Ministry of Education, and therefore international students enrolled in regular degree studies pay no tuition fees.

You can study in Finland for free for international students.

Bachelor’s and Doctoral level programmes -as well as many Master’s level programmes- do not charge any tuition fees, regardless of your nationality. This also applies to the international degree students and to exchange and visiting students as well. However, some Master’s programmes may charge tuition fees from non-EU/EEA students.

The student union charges a membership fee per term. Membership is compulsory for those studying for their Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees; those pursuing their doctoral studies may join the student union if they wish.

One important aspect of study in Finland is considering how to finance your study or research period. You will need to be able to cover your everyday living expenses, travel, insurance, etc. Financing one’s stay and studies in Finland by working is not possible.
