Tuition fees for Metropolia's English Degree Students coming from outside of EU/EEA countries

16.02.2016

The Board of Metropolia University of Applied Sciences has decided on Friday 12th February 2016 to implement tuition fees for degree students coming from outside of EU/EEA countries.

The level of annual tuition fees vary from 10 000-12 000 euros for Bachelor level studies and 11 000-13 000 euros for Master level studies per academic year. A scholarship scheme is also under consideration and Metropolia’s Board will take scholarships in the reading in March 2016.

The annual tuition fees for all of Metropolia’s English Degree Programmes take place on August 1st, 2017 for the applicants coming from outside of EU/EEA countries.

The intended pilot phase of 5 English Degree Programmes starting from January 2017 will not be initiated as previously was announced.*

”The implementation of the tuition fees gives us a splendid opportunity to grow our business, and at the same time raise the quality of education when competing for customers in the global education markets”, says Director Katri Luukka.

The decision is based on the change in Finnish legislation allowing the institutions of higher education to collect tuition fees from the students coming outside of EU/EEA area in the English Degree Programmes. The transition time has started from 1.1.2016, and the universities of applied sciences will be obliged to charge the tuition fees from students starting their studies 1.8.2017 or later.

In Metropolia, the students coming from outside of EU/EEA and who started their studies in January 2016 or prior to that, or those accepted in as students during the joint application period in spring 2016 will be free of tuition fees during their studies. The tuition fees do not apply to any of the Finnish Degree Programmes regardless of the student’s citizenship.
