Tuition Fee Exemptions
At HAMK we don’t offer any fully funded scholarship for undergraduate degree programmes. HAMK’s scholarship programme is available for the nationals of non-EU and non-EEA countries who are studying for a degree in HAMK’s English-taught degree programmes. The nationals of non-EU and non-EEA countries are obliged to pay the annual tuition fee.
HAMK grants scholarships based on Finnish language skills and study progress. The scholarship programme awards students who gain at least the basic skills of Finnish language during their degree studies and simultaneously advance in their studies at HAMK. The aim of HAMK’s scholarship programme is to support the future employment of international degree students in Finland by encouraging students to gain good level of Finnish language during their studies.
Please note: You will follow the same scholarship programme which applied at the start of your studies for the whole duration of your studies. The students who have started their degree studies before August 2021, will continue with the scholarship programme, which applied at the start of their studies.
The scholarship will be paid within a month after the test is being taken. After the finance team receives the test results and goes through the credits, it will contact the students for their bank details.
If a student does not pass the test, he/she can retake the test (either in February or October). The first time a student takes a test it is free, but the next tests will cost 108 €. The test can be paid in HAMK Shop https://shop.hamk.fi/ (before the test).
Students can be awarded with a scholarship two times during their studies, based on their level of Finnish language and provided that their progress fulfills 60 ECTS credits per academic year at HAMK. The Finnish language skills are evaluated by exam results (see below: Finnish language tests).
When calculating the credits for scholarship, only the ones passed during the study period in HAMK will be taken into consideration. Earlier credits from another institute are not valid and not being taken into account (for example Recognition of prior learning, RPL).
