Tuition free education;

According to (BBC) Finnish education is rated one of the best in the world and it is still FREE! Though the Government is planning to implement tuition for master's program soon. So it's better you take this opportunity now!

Higher education is divided into 2 (Traditional Universities and Universities of Applied sciences)
Since I am writing for international students. Master's should be more interested in the former,
while undergraduate should go for the later because they have more programmes in English.


There are 20 Universities in Finland.Universities promote free research & scientific learning, and provide higher education based on that.
Finnish universities have roots going back to 17th century. University of Helsinki is rated in the
top 50 Universities worldwide. The total university enrollment is currently about 176,500 students, approximately 5,400 international degree students.

Admission; Universities have their own admission policy, procedures vary by universities and
As a general rule, international applicants for degree studies in Finland must first fulfill the
minimum requirements of their own country.
Students should be prepared to take an entrance examination.
Good command of English must usually be certificated.

Universities confer Bachelor's & master's degrees and postgraduate licentiate and doctoral degrees.
Bachelor's degree takes 3 years
master's degree takes 2 years
Doctoral degree takes 4 years

So many master's programmes here available in english, so i cant list them for now, just ask for
your preferred programme, and i will respond with the available options and schools.


There are 29 Universities of applied sciences in Finland. Undergraduate students should take note, UAS got more undergraduate programmes in English compared
