Tampere University Student's Handbook

Tuition fees

Tuition fees apply to non-EU/EEA citizens studying in bachelor's or master's degree programmes offered in English at Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences. Fees range between 8 000 and 12 000 euros per academic year depending on the programme. Tuition fees apply to students who have been admitted in 2017 or later.

You are not required to pay the tuition fee if you are: 

  • an EU/EEA citizen 
  • equivalent to EU/EEA citizen (i.e. citizen of Switzerland)
  • British citizen who has entered Finland before 1 January 2021 and registered, or applied to register, the right to residence in Finland in accordance with the withdrawal agreement  Article 50.
  • already reside in Finland (a continuous A residence permit granted on other grounds than studies or a permanent P/P-EU residence permit), or have an EU Blue Card issued in Finland. The exempting residence permit must be valid on 1 August / 1 January i.e. when the study right commences. Please note that a residence permit in another EU/EEA country does not exempt you from the tuition fee. 

There are no tuition fees in doctoral programmes. 

If you are unsure about whether you are subject to tuition fees, please see Am I required to pay tuition fees? section on the site.
