Tuition Free Universities in Finland

Here is an excerpt from, a website that solely deals with Study In Finland issues :

Since university education is funded by the State through the Ministry of Education, students enrolled in regular degree studies pay no tuition fees with exceptions.  If you are enrolled as a non-EU/EEA degree student in a Bachelor’s or Doctoral level programme, the higher education institution will not charge tuition fees.  However, students in both universities and polytechnics have to pay for their books and other materials, plus their accommodation and living expenses.

Some Master’s level programmes are free of charge as well, however, a number of them may carry tuition fees for non-EU/EEA students during a five-year trial period 2010–2014. Depending on the programme, tuition fees may be collected starting from autumn 2010, 2011 or 2012.

If your Master’s programme carries a tuition fee for non-EU/EEA students  and if you are a non-EU/EEA citizen, you are advised to contact the higher education institution in question directly for information on the scholarship opportunities they provide.  Higher education institutions that choose to collect tuition fees in their English-language Master’s programmes will also provide scholarship options for non-EU/EEA students enrolled in tuition-fee carrying Master’s programmes.

Cost of Studying in Finland: Estimated living expenses of a single student in Finland average around 700 Euros per month.
