Welcome, new Master Degree Student

We are pleased to have you as our student! On this page you can find the instructions for your smooth start at JAMK. Please, follow them carefully and notice the deadlines!

Familiarise yourself with the Study Guide which you are already reading at the moment. The Study Guide contains information that is common to all students. You will need it throughout your entire studies.

Tuition fees / exemption of tuition fees

Notice that 1st of January 2016 a new legislation concerning tuition fees came into effect in Finland. Therefore, higher education institutions are obliged to charge tuition fees for those students who are not citizens of countries of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA).The legislation concerns degree programmes taught in English. The tuition fees of JAMK for NON-EU/EEA citizens are €9,000/academic year for Master's Degrees taught in English.

The following document exempts students of paying tuition fees:
  • a Finnish passport or a passport of any other EU/EEA country
  • Continuous residence permit card in Finland (type A permit)
  • Permanent residence permit card in Finland (type P permit)
  • EU residence permit for third-country citizens with long-term residence card in Finland (Type P-EU)
  • EU Blue Card in Finland
  • EU Family Member's Residence Card in Finland

If you hold one of the documents, send us a copy of it as soon as possible. You may scan it and send it via email to fasten the process: studentservices(at)jamk.fi. Thus, if you have one of these cards you do not need to pay the tuition fee! We will check the original document in the beginning of studies. If you are in the process of receiving one of these cards, please inform us about that as well. If you start your studies in the autumn semester the card must be valid on 1st of August and it must be presented by 31st August to be exempted from paying the tuition fee. In the spring semester the card must be valid on 1st of January and it must be presented by 31st January to be exempted from paying the tuition fee.

Notice, if you receive one of the documents at any point of your studies, please inform Student Services immediately, then you are exempted from paying the tuition fees starting from the following semester.

The scholarship scheme for master's degrees:
The scholarship covers 50% of the tuition fee in the first academic year (a scholarship can be given only to such students who are required to pay tuition fees). Thus, the fee for the first academic year is 4,500€.

In the following academic years, the scholarship covers 50% of the tuition fee IF a student earns at least 30 credits per academic year (15 credits per semester) in the master's degrees. The credits are counted cumulatively. The scholarship can be received only for the standard study period. Consequently, the fee must be paid for all semesters and academic years for which the student enrolls as attending student, including any extension period. Note, in a case a student has already paid the tuition fee for the entire academic year, but graduates by 31 December the fee from spring semester is returned only if requested by the student.
