Tuition fees and scholarships

Remember to pay the tuition fee and apply for scholarships

Students enrolled to SAMK who are nationals of non-EU and non-EEA countries, are due to pay the annual tuition fee. There is a scholarship programme available for the students who pay the tuition fee.

The tuition fee is 9,500 euros per academic year for non-EU/EEA students in each Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree programme taught in English, except for the degree programmes of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Mechatronics which have a tuition fee of 10,500 € per academic year.

The fees will not concern those students who

  • are citizens of EU/EEA/Switzerland
  • have an EU Blue Card
  • have a continuous residence permit card in Finland (Type A permit) issued for purposes other than studies. Therefore, it’s important to note that a Type A permit granted for studying in Finland (from 15 April 2022 onwards) does not exempt student from paying tuition fee.
  • have a permanent residence permit card in Finland, Type P permit
  • have an EU residence permit for third-country citizens with long-term residence permit card in Finland (Type P-EU)
  • have an EU Family Member’s Residence Card in Finland
  • have a Brexit residence permit card in Finland, Type SEU-sopimuksen 50 artikla = Right of residence under the withdrawal agreement, or P SEU-sopimuksen 50 artikla = Right of permanent residence under the withdrawal agreement
