Appropriate tuition fees for all students

The cost of living in Finland is low compared to other popular international destinations such as Tokyo, London or Paris. Although the Finnish Government has enacted a law requiring international students to pay tuition fees, this law does not apply to students enrolled in doctoral programs or in exchange programs or in Finnish or Swedish courses.

Education in Finland is free of charge for EU citizens. However, this does not mean that scholarships for tuition fees are impossible. Finnish universities offer many scholarships to international students who wish to study bachelor's or master's programs in English. For example, the University of Tampere offers a range of scholarships to international students who are enrolled in Master's programs taught in English.
