We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Finland offers a striking destination for postgraduate study abroad, with high-tech modern cities surrounded by beautiful unspoilt Nordic tundra. A Masters in Finland will give you the chance to appreciate this unique setting whilst studying at internationally renowned universities.
Finland takes pride in its higher education system, emphasising accessibility and internationalisation as a core principle of its universities and their degree programs. One example of this is the country's attitude to tuition fees: at present Masters degrees in Finland are free for all EU, EEA and Swiss students.
There's more to Finnish universities than free education though. Whilst studying a Masters in Finland you'll be able to access unique research and training opportunities: examining the culture and history of the Scandinavian region or investigating geographical and meteorological phenomena such as the aurora borealis. Finland is also a leader in IT development and electronic communications technologies.
When not studying for your Masters you'll be able to explore beautiful landscapes (hiking is a popular Finnish pastime) and perhaps even go looking for Santa Claus - one of Finland's most famous 'residents'.
Despite its northern location, Finland is a popular destination for international education. There are around 23,000 students studying abroad in Finland, many of them on postgraduate degrees.
Most Masters degree programmes in Finland take two years to complete. The Finnish academic year runs from August or September to May or June, with small variations between individual universities.
There are currently no tuition fees in Finland for EU/EEA nationals. However, as of the 2017/18 academic year, Finnish universities have begun charging non-EU/EEA students for Masters programmes that are taught in English. These fees vary between €4,000 and €18,000.
Degrees in Finland are normally taught in Finnish or Swedish, but increasing numbers of Masters programmes are now being offered in English.
You won't need a visa to study in Finland as an EU or EEA student (however, you will need to register for a residence permit upon arrival in the country). Other students should contact a Finnish embassy for details of visa and immigration requirements.
You can find detailed information and advice on studying a Masters in Finland in our study guide. This covers the Finnish university system, degree types, application requirements and student visas.
