Tampere University Student's Handbook
Scholarships for fee-paying students admitted in 2021 or later
Please note that the information available on this page applies to the scholarships of students who have been admitted as students in 2021 or later. Scholarship conditions and guidelines for students admitted in 2020 or earlier are available through this link.
The Tampere University scholarship programme for students admitted in 2021 or later consists of the Tampere University tuition fee scholarship and the Tampere University International Advancement Scholarship. In addition, Finland Scholarships are awarded at admission to Master's programmes in 2022-2024. All Tampere University scholarships are available for fee-paying students. Information on who is a fee-paying student is available under Tuition fees.
Scholarships are awarded at admission and during studies. Those students who have been awarded a scholarship at admission have received the detailed terms and conditions of their scholarship with their letters of acceptance. This page includes information on the conditions and practicalities of scholarships. In addition, information on how to apply for the scholarships awarded during studies will be updated on this page.
The total duration of all Tampere University scholarships may not be longer than the normative duration of studies for the degree to be completed, with the exception of the tuition fee scholarship awarded for the fifth semester of Master's studies which is available for all fee-paying students pursuing a Master's degree for finalising the Master's thesis. The duration of scholarships is calculated on the basis of semesters enrolled as attending. Also, Tampere University scholarships awarded during studies may only be awarded to students who are within their normative duration of studies during the scholarship period.
The normative duration of studies is three academic years for a Bachelor’s degree and two academic years for a Master’s degree. If the student is admitted to a Bachelor’s programme and earns the study right also to a Master’s degree upon admission, the tuition fee scholarship is granted for the combined normative duration of studies for both degrees (five academic years). Please see Right to study and target times to complete the degree for more detailed information on normative study times.
A student who is found guilty of plagiarism is not eligible for any Tampere University scholarships. If a fee-paying student who is studying on a scholarship is found guilty of plagiarism, they will be issued a warning of losing the scholarship. If the same student is found guilty of plagiarism again, the process for cancelling the student's scholarship will be implemented.
Please find more detailed information on the Finland Scholarship, the Tampere University tuition fee scholarship, the Tampere University International Advancement Scholarship and the tuition fee scholarship awarded for the fifth semester of Master's studies in the sections below.
