Tuition fees for Bachelor degree studies at Arcada

In 2017, all Finnish higher education institutions have implemented tuition fees for degrees taught in English.

Arcada will collect a tuition fee of 6,000 euros/academic year for bachelor’s degree studies in English (210-240 ECTS credits), starting autumn of 2017.  

Who is required to pay?

The fee applies to applicants from countries outside the European Union/EEA-area. The 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 or their family members. The exemption will also apply to those who have an EU blue card stated in the Aliens Act, continuous or permanent residence permit or a long-term resident’s EC residence permit. If you are unsure as to whether you need to pay or not, please see this guide on Studyinfo.


We also offer scholarships on Bachelor level. The scholarship cover a maximum of 50 percent of the tuition fee. Based on his or her study achievements, the paying student can be granted a scholarship from his or her second year.  To be eligible for a scholarship, you need to complete 55 ECTS credits during the academic year.

Further information about the tuiton fees, their payment and scholarships will be updated on this site shortly.
