Tuition Fee and Scholarships for Degree Students


Tuition Fee


The University of Turku charges tuition fees from all non EU/ETA citizens unless they receive the scholarship of the University of Turku. Also, holders of certain types of residence permits or family members of EU/ETA/Switzerland citizens are not charged.

How to pay the tuition fee?

  • Check the exact amount of tuition fee from your admission offer.
  • Decide whether you want to pay the fee in one or two installments
  • Go to UTUshop and choose the right MA programme.
  • Choose the right option in the drop-down list on the right and follow the instructions.

The deadline for paying the tuition fee (full or half) is 31 July 2018.


  • You may accept your study place prior to paying the tuition fee.
  • You are unable to register to the university before you pay the tuition fee.
  • It is not possible to begin studies at the university before you have registered.  
  • More information about registration and the Student Union



Some students are offered a scholarship which covers 100% or 50% of the tuition fee. The grant offer is sent to these students together with the admission offer. They must accept the study place and the scholarship by 18 April 2018. 

If you were offered a scholarship covering 50 % of your tuition fee you must pay the other half first. After that your scholarship is paid and the other half of your tuition compensated.


If you were accepted conditionally for the degree studies at the University of Turku, the scholarship is also conditional until you have also fulfilled the requirements needed for the study right.
