New government suggests tuition fees for non-EU/EEA students
The newly formed Finnish government has included the option of
introducing tuition fees for non-EU/EEA students in their four-year governmental programme published yesterday (27th May 2015).
The governmental programme mentions possible tuition fees for non-EU/EEA students, but at this stage only states some very general
terms, suggesting 2016 or 2017 as a preliminary introduction timetable.
The governmental programme does not in any way specify the extent of
the suggested fees, but does briefly mention that in case fees would
be introduced, a new scholarship system should also be created.
