Scholarships and tuition fees for non-EU/EEA students

Who will need to pay tuition fee?

On 15 December 2015 the Finnish Parliament has decided to impose tuition fees for non-EU/EEA citizens. The fees will concern students who are not citizens of EU/EEA countries and who start their studies in English-taught Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes in August 2017 or after that. However, students can be exempted from the tuition fee e.g. on the basis of their residence permits. Read more on Studyinfo article "Am I required to pay tuition fees?"

In order to be exempted from the tuition fee at Metropolia, an applicant must deliver a copy of one of the following documents by the deadline:

  • Passport or identity card to indicate the citizenship of EU/EEA/Switzerland *)
  • EU Blue Card
  • Continuous residence permit card in Finland (Type A permit)
  • EU Family Member's Residence Card in Finland
  • Permanent residence permit card in Finland (Type P permit)
  • EU residence permit for third-country citizens with long term residence permit card in Finland (Type P-EU)

*) Citizens of Finland are not required to provide proof of their citizenship as it will be verified from the population register.

The document exempting from the tuition fee must be valid on 1 August in order for it to be considered for studies starting in autumn term and on 1 January in order for them to be considered for studies starting in spring term. If an applicant's document exempting him/her from the tuition fee is not valid as required, he/she should deliver a proof of initiation (e.g. copy of the residence application etc.) instead.

An application must be submitted at Studyinfo.fi before sending any documents concerning the exemption from the tuition fee. After the application has been submitted, the exemption documents can be delivered via a specific link available at https://applicationattachments.metropolia.fi. A photo taken with a mobile phone or camera is acceptable.

Invoicing for tuition fees

Those, who are required to pay a tuition fee, will be sent an invoice via email. In order to enroll for the academic year, students must pay the entire tuition fee at once by the due date (approximately within 14 days of the admission decision).

Invoices have a reference number, which must be stated in the payment when paying the invoice. In addition to the tuition fee, possible fees charged by banks for the payment transaction must be paid by the student.

The study place will not be confirmed until the payment has been credited to Metropolia's account. Once you have paid the tuition fees, please send a copy of your payment receipt to: kirjanpito.maksuliikenne@metropolia.fi

Confirming the study place

The admission of a student is conditional until the student has:

  • paid the tuition fee 
  • confirmed his/her study place at Studyinfo.fi
  • enrolled for the first academic year as present or absent (possible only after the student has received an e-mail from the Admission Services confirm the receipt of the tuition fee)
  • signed the Student Agreement

Furthermore, the admission is conditional until Metropolia checked the applicant’s original school as well as other relevant certificates. Metropolia will withdraw the admission if the student does not pay the tuition fee by the due date, provide the required school and other relevant documents by the given deadline or if he/she has given inadequate or false information.
