How to apply for a scholarship?

The scholarship is applied for when applying for admission to the university by filling out the relevant section of the application form. The decision about the scholarship is made in connection with student admission, and the student is notified of the matter in the letter of acceptance.

The scholarship is personal and it is awarded for two academic years.

See the criteria at:

Students who are awarded a scholarship are required to sign and return a scholarship payment form to the programme coordinator before the payment of the scholarship can begin.

Other mandatory fee

All degree students of the university are members of the Student Union. The Student Union membership fee is 126 € per academic year.

The Student Union membership fee entitles the student to, for example:

  • free basic health care
  • reduced lunch prices at student cafeterias

Further information is available on the website of the Student Union.

Other considerations

The scholarship is awarded for two academic years. The first year scholarship will be granted based on the criteria prepared in connection with the preparation of the student admission criteria. However, the scholarship awarded for the second year is conditional and tied to the progress of the student’s studies. The prerequisite for the scholarship to continue in the second academic year is that the student has completed a minimum of 55 ECTS credits of studies that are included in his or her degree during the first academic year (transferred credits are not taken into consideration). If the above prerequisite is not met, the conditional scholarship awarded for the second academic year can be discontinued on this basis. The student is heard in the matter before a decision to discontinue the scholarship is made.   

The UEF does not offer selected students any additional funding, financial aid or working opportunities. Therefore, students must be able to cover all their own living costs in Finland independently. Finding any other funding opportunities is also the responsibility of the students himself/herself. One’s own finances are one of the requirements for the Finnish residence permit, and finances need to be available permanently on a student's bank account for the whole period the permit is applicable. Completely financing one's stay and studies in Finland by working is not possible, though part-time work may be available. For more information about the residence permit, please see the Finnish government’s Immigration service at
