Since 2017 all Finnish higher education institutions are charging tuition fees for degrees taught in English from students from outside the EU/EEA area. Arcada will collect a tuition fee of 6,000 euros/academic year for bachelor’s degree studies in English (210-240 ECTS credits). Scholarships are provided from the second year. 

However, those who are liable for payment can be granted scholarships for their Bachelor's level studies. The scholarship covers a maximum of 50 percent of the tuition fee. Based on his or her study achievements, the paying student can be granted a scholarship starting from his or her second year onwards. To be eligible for a scholarship, you need to complete 55 ECTS credits during the academic year.
