Application procedure for Tourism Marketing and Management (intake Autumn 2018)
Online applications are to be submitted through Studyinfo portal (www.studyinfo.fi).
Applicants are required to prioritize one program over the others, if they apply more than one program from the UEF’s Faculty of Social Sciences and Business Studies.

All available study programmes in Finland can be found on the Studyinfo portal where applicants can search for suitable programmes and start the application. The online application is only open during the application period.

The University of Eastern Finland will have a substantial number of scholarships available for students who are required to pay tuition fees in Master’s degree programmes offered in English. The scholarships will be available for the most talented fee-paying students. 80 % of fee-paying students will be awarded a scholarship to our programme. Half of the scholarships cover the tuition fee completely (100 %) and half covers the tuition fees partially (80 %).
