Description
No tuition fees are charged in Bachelor’s level degree programmes in Finland. The same is true of several Master’s programmes. The cost of this education is covered by the Finnish government, therefore, there are usually no scholarships available.

However, in those Master's level programmes that charge a tuition fee from non-EU/EEA students, institutional scholarships for non-EU/EEA students are available. These institutional scholarships are always applied for directly from the university in question.

The Centre for International Mobility Fellowships programme is open to young researchers (after Master-level but not post-doctorate) from all countries and from all academic fields.

‣ These research scholarships are for study at Universities and academic institutions in Finland.
