2014 list of tuition free universities in Finland

Higher education in Finland is financed by the government, so both EU/non EU and international students are all exempted from fee payment. As a student, you only need to budget for money you’ll use for your living expenses. In Finland, the estimated living expenses is put at 500 to 600 Euros per month. This usually covers the cost of accommodation, food, books etc for one month. Note that I used the word ‘estimated’ meaning that there is no exact figure for living cost. It all depends on the student and his/her spending habbit. But note that the embassy will want to see a documented financial proof that you can afford to take care of yourself for the first year you will be in Finland.

Today, I will post a list of Institutions in Finland that are not charging tuition fees. So if you do not have money to pursue your study abroad, why not avail yourself of this opportunity?
