There are lots of English-taught degree options both on Bachelor's and Master's level to choose from! The universities and UAS's (universities of applied sciences) in Finland have scholarship options on offer for gifted non-EU students. You usually apply for the scholarship from the university or UAS at the same time when you apply for admission.

  • First, be sure to read our starter's advice for prospective students: Your Five Steps to Finland. That will explain the process in a nutshell.
  • Find your desired degree programme at the national database. You can find information on the eligibility criteria, scholarship options, and other details in the Studyinfo database degree programme descriptions.
  • In the joint application, you can apply to up to six (6) programmes with one application form. You can be offered several study places and choose which place you wish to confirm.
