There are no tuition fees charged in Finnish higher education degrees, regardless of the level of studies and the nationality of the student.
But please note that this does not completely rule out the possibility that the situation might change at some point in the future.
Recently, a working group set up by the Finnish Minister of Education and Science drafted up an action plan to promote education exports. This action plan suggested, among other things, that tuition fees could be introduced for non-EU/EEA students at some stage in the future. Also, the possibility of introcucing tuition fees was reported to be ‘on the table’ in the governmental budged talks in March 2014 – however the fee issue did not eventually end up in the budgetary decisions.
So, no tuition fee decisions have yet been made, either for or against. It remains yet to be seen what the government decides on this matter, and when.
