Tuition Fees

Tuition fees for non-EU/EEA students at Novia UAS 2018

The tuition fees for the academic year 2018-19 (1 August 2018 - 31 July 2019), are set per degree programme/per academic year. The total cost indicates the total fee for a degree, if the studies are completed according to the curriculum as full-time or part-time studies respectively. Full-time studies correspond to 60 credits/academic year. The total fee will vary according to the number of academic semesters needed to complete the studies. The studies may be completed in fewer academic semesters only in exceptional cases.  Read about the decision here. 

The tuition fees do not concern those who are:

  • already enrolled at Novia UAS (before 2017)
  • enrolled in Swedish degree programmes
  • EU/EEA citizens or their close family members (children or spouse)
  • residing in Finland or the EU/EEA on a permanent basis (has one of the following: continuous residence permit (type A), permanent residence permit (type P/P-EU) or has the EU-Blue card).  

More information about whom is required to pay tuition fees can also be found here.

There is a scholarship system in place for students required to pay the tuition fee.
