TAMK establishes tuition fees for non-EU/EEA degree students

Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK) has set tuition fees for non-EU/EEA degree students starting at TAMK from autumn 2017 onwards.

Instead of the more traditional field of study pricing, TAMK has selected degree level pricing as the basis for the cost structure. In principle, the academic year will cost 9800 euros on the bachelor level (AMK) and 10 800 euros on the master level (YAMK).

The decision is based on an amendment to existing legislation which took effect on 1st January 2016. The amendment decrees that all universities of applied sciences must charge tuition fees from non-EU/EEA degree-seeking students from 1st August 2017 onwards.

Legislation also stipulates that universities of applied sciences establish a scholarship system. The system will be put in place before the application period for autumn 2017 starts. At the same time TAMK will consider possible reductions to tuition fees, should certain academic years be completed mainly through practical training or online courses which are carried out in the workplace in the student's home country.

– We are now in a very real way measuring the reputation and price-quality ratio of the Finnish education system and our degree studies. Tampere as well as TAMK have a lot of attractive selling points such as modern learning environments, pedagogical know-how and a unique collaboration model between higher education institutions, notes President Markku Lahtinen from Tampere University of Applied Sciences.

TAMK's degree programme offer for autumn 2017 will be published in autumn 2016.
