English degree programmes attracted the applicants outside the EU / EEA countries despite the yearly tuition fees

27.01.2017

This spring’s first joint application period for Bachelor's Degree studies conducted in English ended on Wednesday 25.1. Metropolia UAS had six English degree programmes in the joint application: Information Technology, Electronics, European Business Administration, International Business and Logistics, Nursing and Social Services.

The total number of applicants declined moderately compared to last year, with the exception of Social Services and Nursing, both of which have a skill requirement for the Finnish language, and their number of applicants remained unchanged.

The English degree programmes attracted the applicants outside the EU / EEA countries despite the introduction of the yearly tuition fees. In addition to Finland, the most applicants were from Asian and African countries, such as, inter alia, Nepal, Nigeria, Vietnam, Kenya, Bangladesh and Pakistan. For Russia, the number of applicants has seen somewhat a decline.

Metropolia’s academic tuition fees apply for non-EU/EEA degree students who start their studies in English-taught Bachelor's or Master's degree programmes in August 2017 or after that. Metropolia has introduced a scholarship scheme for those students.

The entrance examinations for the Bachelor Degrees conducted in English will be held in April 2017.

Joint application continues from 15th March to 5th April 2017 with Bachelor's Degree studies conducted in Finnish and Master's Degree studies in Finnish and in English.
