Tuition Fees

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


The tuition fees for the academic year 2021-2020 (1 August 2021 - 31 July 2022), 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 issued in Finland).  The permit must be valid through 1 August for the autumn semester and through 1 January for the spring semester.

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. Students can apply for the scholarship before the beginning of their second year of studies (as fee-paying students). The scholarship will be granted based on success in previous studies at Novia UAS. Read more about the scholarship process here.

Early bird fee

  • they confirm their study place within two weeks from the notice of admission and
  • pay the tuition fee no later than 31 May 2021.

The early bird tuition fee is valid for the first year of studies and amounts to 50 % of regular tuition fee. Students may choose to pay the early bird tuition fee for the first academic year or for the first semester.
