Scholarship options at the Finnish universities


Finland belongs to the countries in which the non-EU/EEA students have to pay tuition fees for their studies. On the other side, there are many possibilities to apply for a scholarship which at least will help to avoid the fees or will even cover the living costs.

Unless the DAAD in Germany or the Svenska Institutet (SI) in Sweden, the Finnish National Agency for Education (EDUFI) almost doesn´t offer the Master´s degree scholarships, giving a strong preference to the PhD. However, the Master´s level students can choose between two other sources of funding. The first option is to apply for one of the Erasmus Mundus programmes.

The second one is to browse through the list of Finnish universities - a variety of them are offering for the academic year 2018-19 part- or full-founded Bachelor´s, Master´s and PhD scholarships and the application period is still open. But the deadlines are approaching very rapidly, so check the list of those universities on the website of Studyinfinland.Fi.
