Tuition fees

Tuition fees

Tuition fees concern degree students from non-EU/EEA countries that started their studies in August 2017 or later, studying in programmes where the language of instruction is English. Listed below are the programmes that collect fees.

The fees will  not concern those non-EU/EEA students who are equated with EU area citizens. The exemption will also apply to those who have an EU blue card stated in the Aliens Act, continuous or permanent residence permit or a long-term resident’s EC residence permit.

Fees do not apply to exchange students, regardless of their citizenship, nor to doctoral programmes.

If you are unsure about whether you are subject to tuition fees, check the Am I required to pay tuition fees? section on the Studyinfo.fi application site or contact the Admissions office.

Åbo Akademi University will waive the tuition fees from asylum seekers living in Finland who have been admitted to a programme where the language of instruction is English.

The fees are set by the Rector. Below, please find the fees for the academic year 2018/2019.
