Tampere University invites application for Tampere University Scholarships Programme for eligible and interested candidates
About- Both Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences offer several scholarships for fee-paying students to provide excellent international students with high-quality yet affordable education. Scholarships are not available for students in tailored degree education provided for a third party. Also, Tampere University cooperates with organizations that provide scholarships to specific groups of applicants.
Tampere University seeks to recognize high-achieving, motivated students. Tampere University Scholarships Programme is intended for students who must pay tuition fees in Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs offered in English. Scholarships are merit-based and may be awarded primarily at admission to the most successful applicants. A limited number of scholarships is available annually. Some scholarships may also be earned during studies.
- The prerequisite for retaining the Tampere University tuition fee scholarship throughout the programme duration is progressing in studies at the normative pace.
- In order to retain the full tuition fee scholarship in the following year of studies, the recipient must earn at least 55 credits during the academic year as detailed in the personal study plan.
- If a scholarship recipient completes 50-54 credits during the academic year, his or her scholarship will be reduced to 50% in the following academic year.
- If a scholarship recipient completes less than 50 credits during the academic year, he or she will be charged the full tuition fee in the following academic year.
- you must apply for the scholarship as part of your application for admission during the application period for admission.
Tampere University tuition fee scholarships cover 100% of the tuition fees for the programme duration. The programme duration is
- three years for Bachelor’s degrees
- two years for Master’s degrees
- five years if the study right is granted for both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree.
