Who is required to pay?
The fee applies to applicants from countries outside the EU/EEA. The first payment is always done per academic year, in one installment. The first payment needs to be done when you accept your study place, after which it is done alongside 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 the guide on Studyinfo External link.
Payment of tuition fee
Students who are required to pay tuition fee will receive information about the payment process in the acceptance e-mail, but we have written a short summary of the process so you can start preparing.
When you are admitted to Arcada, you will receive a secure-link through which you must accept your study place offer. After that, you will receive another e-mail with instructions on how to pay the tuition fee. If Arcada receives your payment before the deadline, you will then receive further instructions on how to register for the academic year. Failure to pay tuition fees on time leads to loss of study right.
You will be able to choose from one of the following payment options:
- Finnish Bank Cards.
If you want to pay using an invoice, please check possible delays with your bank regarding transactions to Finland to make sure that the payment is received by Arcada before the due date. The due date is the same as the deadline for accepting your study place, and stated both in the invoice and in your acceptance letter. Please note that the invoice is to be paid in euros.
