Tuition Fees and Scholarships

Haaga-Helia UAS will charge a tuition fee from a student accepted to a degree programme taught in English. The tuition fee includes teaching and access to the learning facilities and the student Library. As a student at Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences you have access to Student Services and ICT services will also be at your disposal to support your studies. Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes conducted in English have a tuition fee if you are not a citizen of a country of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland.

The tuition fee is

♦ EUR 8,500.00 per academic year for Bachelor of Business Administration programmes, and
♦ EUR 9,500.00 per academic year for Bachelor of Hospitality Management, Bachelor of Sports Studies programmes as well as all the Master's degree programmes taught in English.

Please note that housing costs, meal plans or health insurance are not included in the tuition fee. So, make sure you have enough financial means to pay your rent, personal expenses, transportation costs, meals, insurance etc.

Finnish immigration service requires that you have at least EUR 560 at your disposal every month to be able to pay for your accommodation, food and other needs. So, in addition to the tuition fee you must have EUR 6,720 to be able to study in Finland for a year and to get a residence permit in Finland. More information about income requirement for students is available at Finnish immigration service´s website.

Exemption from tuition fees

You are exempted from paying tuition fees if you have one of the following documents:

  • Passport or identity card to indicate the citizenship of EU/EEA/Switzerland
  • EU Blue Card in Finland
  • Continuous residence permit card in Finland, Type A permit
  • EU Family Member's Residence Card in Finland
  • Permanent residence permit card in Finland, Type P permit
  • EU residence permit for third-country citizens with long-term residence permit card in Finland (Type P-EU).

Haaga-Helia adheres to the nationwide policy, where the exemption from the tuition fee depends on the status of the residence permit on 1 August in the autumn term and 1 January in the spring term. If the residence permit is valid on 1 August, no payment is required for the autumn term. If the residence permit is valid on 1 January, no payment is required for the spring term. If you have applied for residence permit but have not received the decision by the date when the tuition fee is due, you will have to pay the fee.

If you have Finnish citizenship, you do not have to send a copy of your passport or identity card (Haaga-Helia UAS can verify the Finnish citizenship from the Population Register Centre).
