Student Financial Aid

Decisions on financial aid for higher education students will be centralised to Kela starting 1 January 2018. University financial aid committees will cease operations, and applications for financial aid will no longer be reviewed at any Finnish university. Students need not contact Kela or their university or to take any other steps as a result of this change.

Visit Kela's online service at www.kela.fi/asiointi (Finnish) to take care of nearly all of your financial aid related matters. On Kela's website at www.kela.fi/students you can find extensive information about student financial aid and other benefits for students.
