Tuition fees at JAMK 2017

A new legislation concerning tuition fees came into effect 1.1.2016 in Finland. According to the legislation, Universities and Universities of Applied Sciences are obliged to charge tuition fees for those students who are not citizens of countries of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) and starting their degree studies 1 August 2017 and onwards. The legislation concerns degree programmes taught in English.

There are NO tuition fees for Finnish or other EU/EEA-citizens.

The tuition fees of JAMK University of Applied Sciences for NON-EU/EEA citizens are €8,000/academic year for bachelor's degrees taught in English (Nursing, International Logistics and International Business) and €9,000/academic year for master's degrees taught in English (Cyber Security). The tuition fee entitles the student to study and receive a degree and to use the normal support services available to students. However, all students have to buy books and other educational material themselves as well as take care of their own travelling and living costs. Average monthly living cost for students are estimated to be about 700 euros (accommodation, food, public transport, study materials, clothing, and leisure activities).

The tuition fees also concern non-EU/EEA students who gain admission via Open Study Path.

Scholarships at JAMK 2017

In the first academic year the scholarship covers 50% of the tuition fee at JAMK. At JAMK a scholarship can be given only to such students who are required to pay tuition fees. In the joint application the scholarship application can be filled as a part of the application form at www.studyinfo.fi.

The results of student selection are announced at the earliest in the beginning of June and at the latest 30 June. The scholarship decision is given together with the admission results. The deadline to accept the study place and the deadline to pay the invoice of the tuition fee is 14 July 2017.

In the following academic years the scholarship covers 50% of the tuition fee if a student earns at least 55 credits per academic year in the bachelor’s and in the master’s degrees. The scholarship can be received only for the standard study period (In International Business & Nursing for 3,5 years, in International Logistics for four years, and in a master’s degree programme in Cyber Security for two years) and only for the semesters one has enrolled for attendance. Consequently, the fee must be paid for all semesters and academic years for which the student enrols as attending student, including any extension period. 

We reserve the right to make changes.
