Paying the tuition fee
The annual fee is paid in two equal instalments per academic year. The due dates for the first academic year are 15 June and 30 November. The tuition fee for the second academic year is also paid in two equal instalments. The due dates are 31 July (monitoring of the completion of the required 55 ECTS by 30 June) and 31 November.
Each instalment must be paid in full by the deadline. The university will not send any reminders. If a student fails to pay the tuition fee in full by the deadline, the student cannot register to the university. The university has the obligation to report to the Finnish Immigration Service (MIGRI), if the student does not start his/her studies or the student drops out.
