Studying in Finland
Studies at the universities of applied sciences (UAS) in Finland are a practical-oriented alternative to traditional university education and give the students an excellent combination of hands-on skills along with a strong theoretical knowledge base. Studies provide professional higher education geared to the requirements and development of working life and support one's professional development.
All Finnish universities and universities of applied sciences are state-recognized. The Finnish Higher Education Evaluation Council audits the quality management systems of the higher education institutions regularly.
The Finnish government has decided to introduce tuition fees for non-EU/EEA degree students who start their studies in English-taught Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes in August 2017 or after that.
The new tuition fee legislation also requires the Finnish higher education institutions to introduce scholarship options to support non-EU/EEA students admitted in the fee-charging degree programmes. Further information about the tuition fees in Finland
