When applying to study abroad, one of the most important factors can be the tuition fee. How much does it cost to study this program? Are there any scholarship opportunities? These are questions that almost everyone asks themselves, when hoping to study abroad at a university.

This blog post will give you a clear idea of what are the most affordable study programs that Edunation offers. Additionally, you’ll see selected programs which rank in the middle and in the more expensive end, when it comes to tuition fee prices. Let’s get started!

tuition fee ranking
We have ranked our program tuition fees in three price-level categories.

The most affordable degrees

Edunation has two partner universities; Kajaani University of Applied Sciences (KAMK) and Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences (SeAMK), that offer very affordable study programs. 

1. Kajaani University of Applied Sciences (KAMK)

All of the study programs at KAMK have a tuition fee of 6000€ per academic year. There are four programs in total:

KAMK also offers an Early Bird scholarship for students, that covers 50% of the tuition fee. Furthermore, there is a possibility for a 3000€ scholarship from the second year onwards. If students receive 55 ECTS credits during an academic year and pass a national Finnish language test, they also have the opportunity to get one academic year for free! With all of these opportunities, KAMK is definitely the most affordable option amongst our universities.

All first-year students at SeAMK will be automatically granted a scholarship worth 3000€. This means that you only have to pay 70% of the tuition fee for the first year! Sounds great, right? After the first year, there is a possibility to get a scholarship that covers 30% of the tuition fee + a one-off scholarship of 1000€ if you achieve a B1 CEFR level in Finnish language. Plenty of scholarship opportunities at SeAMK as well!

Mid-priced study degrees

There are a lot more options when we move towards the middle range of the tuition fee prices. Tuition fees in this rank range from 8 500€ to 9 700€. We will introduce several study programs from four different universities.

LUT’s bachelor’s degrees are perfect for anyone interested in Science with great tuition fee waiver possibilities!

From the second year onwards, students have the opportunity to get tuition fee waivers that are either 50% or 100%. For example, a student will get a 100% tuition fee waiver if they successfully complete their studies during the 1st and 2nd academic year (min. 60 ECTS credits). Sounds like a pretty good deal to me!
