Tuition Fees

Tuition fees for non-EU/EEA students at Novia UAS 

Tuition fees for the academic year 2022-2023 (1 August 2022 - 31 July 2023) are set per degree programme. The tuition fee for Bachelor degree programmes is 6000 euro per academic year and the tuition fee for Master degree programmes is 9000 euro per academic year. Full-time studies correspond to 60 ECTS/academic year. The total fee will vary according to the number of academic semesters needed to complete the studies. The studies may be completed in fewer academic semesters only in exceptional cases. 

The tuition fees do not concern those who are:

  • already enrolled at Novia UAS (before 2017)
  • enrolled in Swedish degree programmes
  • EU/EEA citizens or their close family members (children or spouse)
  • British citizens and have registered, or applied to register, their EU right to residence in Finland in accordance with the withdrawal agreement. Note! The withdrawal agreement does not apply to British citizens who enter Finland on or after 1 January 2021. British citizens entering Finland on or after 1 January 2021 are liable for tuition fees like other non-EU citizens. 
  • residing in Finland or the EU/EEA on a permanent basis (has one of the following: continuous residence permit (A-type permit issued for purposes other than studies), permanent residence permit (type P/P-EU) or has the EU-Blue card issued in Finland).  The permit must be valid through 1 August for the autumn semester and through 1 January for the spring semester.

Note! A type A permit issued for studies does not exempt you from tuition fees.

More information about tuition fees and exempting documents can be found in the Am I required to pay tuition fees? section at Studyinfo. 

There is a scholarship system in place for students required to pay the tuition fee. Fee-paying students can apply for scholarships in the end of each academic year. The scholarship will be granted based on success in previous studies at Novia UAS.

Early bird fee

Fee-paying students who are admitted to our English degree programmes through the Joint Application for Higher Education are entitled to an early bird tuition fee for their first study year if they fulfill the following criteria: 

  • Confirm their study place within two weeks from the notice of admission.
  • Pay the tuition fee no later than 31 May 2022.
  • Have not earlier been offered the early bird tuition fee for the same degree programme. 

The early bird tuition fee is valid for the first year of studies and amounts to 50 % of regular tuition fee. Students may choose to pay the early bird tuition fee for the first academic year or for the first semester.

The early bird tuition fee is only offered once per degree programme. If an applicant, who has been offered the early bird tuition fee in a previous application, re-applies to the same degree programme, he/she will not be entitled to the early bird tuition fee.
