Brexit & tuition fees
Continuing UK degree students are exempt from tuition fees even after the 1st of January 2021 as long as they change their EU registration in Finland to right-to-residence with Migri in accordance with the withdrawal agreement. This change of status must be applied between the 1st of October 2020 and the 30th of September 2021. Proof of right to residence, or proof that the student has applied for it (from Migri) is sufficient for exemption. Migri informationis found on this link: https://migri.fi/en/brexit/en
New UK degree students who have arrived in Finland prior to 31st of December 2020 must register their right to residence (in accordance with the withdrawal agreement) between the 1st of October 2020 and the 31st of December 2020 to be exempt from tuition fees. Registration or application before the end of 2020 exempts the student from tuition fees even if they start their studies (in degree programmes taught in English) after the 1st of January 2021. Proof of registration or application (from Migri) is required. The document must be submitted by 1 January 2021 to Novia UAS to exempt the student from tuition fees for the spring semester 2021.
New UK degree students who arrive in Finland after the 31st of December 2020 are liable to full tuition fee and residence permit requirements like other non-EU/EEA students. The full tuition fee liability also opens the possibility to apply for scholarships at Novia UAS.
