Please read more detailed information about Arcada's tuition fees at our student portal.

Who is required to pay?

The fee applies to applicants from countries outside the European Union/EEA-area. The first payment is always done per academic year, in one instalment.  The first payment needs to be done when you accept your study place, after that it's done along´side the registration for the academic year.

There are however exemptions that can free a non-European/EEA citizen from paying the fee. For example, the fee will not be charged from persons who are equated with EU area citizens. The exemption will also apply to those who have an EU blue card stated in the Aliens Act, continuous or permanent residence permit. If you are unsure as to whether you need to pay or not, please see this guide on Studyinfo.
