Financing the studies

There are no tuition fees for the EU and EEA citizens at the University of Eastern Finland. The non-European citizens studying for a Master’s degree have fees which vary from 8,000 to 15,000 €/year depending on the programme. In some cases the students may receive a full or a partial scholarship for the tuition fee.  Please note that these fees are for the degree seeking students only, not for the exchange students.

The students must also be able to cover all their own living costs in Finland (minimum of 560 euros per month for a single student). Own finances are also one of the requirements for the Finnish residence permit, and finances need to be available permanently on the student’s bank account for the whole period the permit is applied for. Financing one’s stay and studies in Finland by working is not possible. The University of Eastern Finland is not offering any financial aid for students’ living costs but some programmes may offer those scholarships.
