Tuition fees

Finnish institutions of higher education charge tuition fees from students who arrive from outside the EU and the EEA. You must attach to your application evidence that the fees charged by the higher education institution have been paid.

If you already have paid the tuition fee, you should attach documents to your residence permit application to show that the fee has been paid.

If you have not yet paid the tuition fee, you should attach documents to your residence permit application to show that you have the necessary funds to pay your tuition fee and to support yourself in Finland. You cannot pay the tuition fee using the funds reserved for your day-to-day living.

If you have been awarded a grant to cover the tuition fee, attach a certificate of the scholarship from your educational institution to your application. Even if you receive a scholarship, you must still have sufficient financial means to live in Finland.
