Unfortunately, the University cannot offer financial aid to international students. You must at all times be able to finance your studies and living expenses or have a scholarship from your home country or from other sources outside the University of Tampere.
Erasmus Mundus joint degree programmes, which are funded by the European Commission, fund scholarships for outstanding students outside the EU.
Non-citizens of Finland can get financial aid for studies in Finland if they live in Finland on a permanent basis for a purpose other than studying. This requires that they are registered as a permanent resident in the Finnish population register system. The purpose of residence in Finland is determined by reference to such matters as the residence permit, registration or acceptance to an educational institution. For further information, please see the website of the Social Insurance Institution (Kansaneläkelaitos, KELA).
If you are a prospective student looking for information on financing of studies, please see the Admissions site.
