In the autumn of 2017, the University of Tampere will introduce tuition fees for students who come from outside the EU/EEA area. The fees will be EUR 8,000 – 12,000 and they will be charged in English-language degree programmes.

According to the Universities Act, the tuition fees must be charged as of 1 August 2017.

At the University of Tampere, most degree programmes will charge fees of EUR 10,000 – 12,000 for one academic year.

The fees will not be charged of students who have started their studies prior to 1 August 2017 or from students who come from outside the European Union or the European Economic Area but have a permanent residence permit in Finland.

At the same time as the tuition fees are introduced, the University of Tampere will also establish a scholarship programme aimed at the most talented paying students.

There will be two kinds of scholarships: one type will cover either the complete tuition fees or a half of the fees during a two-year Master’s Degree Programme.

The other scholarship type will cover the student’s living costs as well as the tuition fees. The sum annually granted for the living costs is EUR 7,000 in a two-year Master’s Programme.

As they apply to the University of Tampere, students coming from outside the EU/EEA countries can also announce whether they also want to apply for the scholarships. The University will announce the decision on granting the scholarship at the same time as the student is informed about admission.

The progress of the studies of students who receive the scholarships will be followed up every semester. In the first year in a Master’s Programme, a student receiving the scholarship must earn at least 55 credits in order to qualify for the scholarship in the second year.

More information on the tuition fees and scholarship is available on the Admissions page.
