Kajaani University of Applied Sciences is a state-recognized university of applied sciences. The Finnish higher education system consists of two complementary sectors: universities of applied sciences (UAS) and universities. The universities of applied sciences focus on contacts with working life and train professional in response to labour market needs whereas traditional universities conduct scientific reasearch and provide instruction and postgraduate education based on it.  Studying in a Finnish university of applied sciences is currently free of charge (no tuition fees).

After finishing a Bachelor's degree in a Finnish university of applied sciences, it is possible to continue studying towards a Master's degree in a university.


Tuition Fees at KAMK

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
