If you are required to pay tuition fees for your studies, you cannot register for the semester/academic year before you have paid the tuition fee.
You pay the tuition fee here: novia.fi/tuitionfee . The payments can be made for the entire academic year or for one academic semester at a time (autumn/spring). The first payment must be made in connection with the last day for confirming your study place. When the payment of the tuition fee has been made you can register for the academic year or the academic semester for which the fee has been paid. If paying in two instalments, the second payment must be made at the latest 1 January. Please notice that your admission is still conditional until your original school certificates have been checked.
The tuition fees cover your studies only (the tuition fee does not include accommodation or any other type of benefits). Read more about the tuition fees here.
