Tuition fees

All Finnish institutions of higher education charge tuition fees for degrees taught in English. The fees apply to applicants from countries outside the European Union/EEA-area (with a few exceptions).

The tuition fee depends on whether it is a full-time degree or a part-time degree. Please read more about tuition fees for Master's degree studies at Arcada.

Arcada introduced an early bird deal to a fee-paying student who bindingly accepts the study place offer within 14 days. In such a case the tuition fee is reduced with 1 000 €. The early bird deal is offered up to 14 days to the deadline of accepting the study place.  This means that a fee-paying student admitted on the latest 21st June 2019 can make use of the early bird deal.

Arcada does not grant scholarships for Master’s students.
